Synopsis and Discussion

Despite the influx of some cloud cover, weak high pressure over the Triad today has allowed for air quality levels to approach the upper end of the GREEN range. Hourly ozone concentrations in the afternoon may reach low Code YELLOW levels, but the decreasing daylight hours observed in the fall should keep the daily average Code GREEN. The circulation of Tropical Cyclone Maria nears the eastern coastline tomorrow, allowing northeast winds to pick up across the Triad. The increase in dispersion should keep ozone and particle pollution levels in the upper Code GREEN range. Maria begins to slowly move away from the coast on Wednesday, but northerly winds on the backside of the cyclone should generate enough dispersion to keep air quality levels Code GREEN. A cold front moves through the Triad during the afternoon/early evening on Thursday, keeping air quality levels in the Code GREEN range as cooler and cleaner air moves into the state late. (Payne)
