Synopsis and Discussion

Sunny skies, hot temperatures, and light winds are contributing to higher ozone production, Friday, which will push readings into upper YELLOW to low code ORANGE. Little change to the weather pattern is expected through the weekend as stagnant high pressure remains in control. Code ORANGE ozone is forecast for Saturday across the Triad. Code ORANGE is Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups meaning children, elderly, and those with respiratory and/or cardio ailments need to limit their outdoor exertion. An open burn ban is also in effect. Alert level ozone may continue into Sunday, as well. By Monday, more moisture and instability could be enough to drop levels back to the MODERATE range (GENTRY).
