Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels remain in the YELLOW range as light northeasterly winds allow Ozone production to ramp up Tuesday afternoon. Winds will remain light and out of the northeast Wednesday but there should be an outside chance of scattered showers. Even with the showers, AQI concentrations should remain in the mid YELLOW range. A cold front will begin to approach NC from the north along with a tropical system rising out of the Gulf Thursday. These features should cause AQI readings to end up in the lower YELLOW range Thursday. Cooler air will arrive in the Triad by Friday and help produce a taste of fall as high temperatures only reach the lower 80s. (Bodenhamer)
