Synopsis and Discussion

A ridge of high pressure off the coast continues to pump in unseasonably warm and humid air into the Triad, keeping air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range. A brief weakness in the upper level ridge will allow a frontal boundary to sag southward into the Triad late this evening through much of Friday, with light isolated showers allowing particulate matter concentrations to accumulate along/south of the boundary. With the frontal boundary expected to retreat northward as a warm front by Friday night, air quality levels are expected to hover near the upper end of the Code GREEN range. The aforementioned upper level ridge should strengthen over the Triad once again, dropping air quality levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. A cold front approaches the state from the west on Sunday, but scattered showers are not expected to arrive until later in the evening to keep air quality Code GREEN. (Payne)
