Synopsis and Discussion

Weak high pressure across the Carolinas is expected to break down through the morning and lead to an increase in south to southwesterly winds in the afternoon. The increase in dispersion of pollution particles should keep air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range today. A cold front passes through the Triad around noon on Saturday, and colder high pressure builds in from the west to drop air quality levels into the lower Code GREEN range. The ridge of high pressure settles over the Carolinas on Sunday, keeping air quality levels Code GREEN. High pressure then slides offshore on Monday and south to southwest flow through the day should elevate particle pollution levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range by the afternoon. (PAYNE)
