Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels are expected to approach the upper Code GREEN range as light winds and sunny skies under a high pressure ridge should allow for favorable ozone and particle pollution production. The ridge begins to slowly move offshore on Saturday, but the return of warm, moist air into the Triad is expected to be slow and should help nudge air quaility levels into the lower Code YELLOW range. Increasing southerly flow ahead of an approaching cold front on Sunday should help limit ozone from rising into the Code YELLOW range, but the accumulation of particle pollution ahead of the boundary should keep particulate matter levels in the lower Code YELLOW range. Chances of rain increase on Monday as the frontal boundary passes through the Triad, dropping air quality levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. (Payne)
