Synopsis and Discussion

Ozone and particle pollution values are heading towards low code YELLOW, Friday with a slight pollution buildup across the region. A slightly drier air mass will slowly filter into the Triad, over the weekend, as high pressure, centered over the NE US, provides a light NNE flow. Lower humidity in combination with sunny and warm temperatures will enable higher ozone production and push ozone levels to low code YELLOW/upper code GREEN Saturday and Sunday. Similar weather, Monday, in addition to the return of work week traffic may be enough to lead to low code YELLOW to start the workweek (GENTRY).
