Synopsis and Discussion

High pressure will continue to pull offshore today, allowing for southerly winds to increase across the Triad ahead of an approaching cold front. Ozone and particle pollution should build up ahead of the boundary and elevate air quality levels into the lower Code Yellow range through the evening. Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the day on Monday as the aforementioned frontal boundary moves west to east across the Triad, dropping ozone and particle pollution levels into the low to middle Code GREEN range. The cold front clears east of the Triad early Tuesday, and a colder and cleaner high pressure ridge moves in from the west. The arrival of this cooler high pressure ridge should keep air quality levels within the low to middle Code GREEN range through mid-week. (Payne)
