Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels continue to be in the GREEN range for Tuesday as rain from a low pressure storm covered most of the region. Most of the rain will exit the Triad later this evening as winds shift around to the northwest and usher in cooler air. A strong cold core low will spin over the Great lakes and begin to drift eastward by Thursday. This will allow much colder air to track all the way from Canada and send the Triad into a deep freeze for the weekend. Lows could drop into the upper teens, while highs should hold in the 30s. Air quality levels will remain in the GREEN range for the next few days. (Bodenhamer) NOTE: The OPEN BURN BAN has been lifted.
