Synopsis and Discussion

A cooler and cleaner high pressure ridge continues to build into the Triad from the west in the wake of the departing cold front, allowing air quality levels to fall into the low to middle Code GREEN range this afternoon. The ridge of high pressure will likely remain over the Carolinas over the next few days, will chilly mornings leading to slow growth in ozone production until the afternoon. With short daylight hours this late in the season, ozone levels will likely remain in the middle Code GREEN range through Thursday. As for particle pollution, cleaner air sourcing from the north and northwest will likely limit particulate matter concentrations from rising further than the middle Code GREEN range until the end of the week.
