Synopsis and Discussion

A backdoor cold front moving into the Triad overnight has allowed for cloud cover to hang around the area into the afternoon to keep things cooler than usual and keep air quality levels in the upper Code GREEN range. The frontal boundary is expected to retreat northward into the evening and allow for the subtropical ridge to take hold through much of the weekend. Saturday will likely be warmer than normal under mostly cloudy skies, with air quality levels falling into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. Particle pollution levels are expected to rise on Sunday with the approach of a cold front, but the increase in southwesterly winds ahead of the boundary should generate plenty of dispersion to keep air quality Code GREEN. Scattered showers are expected Sunday evening through much of Monday as the front slowly clears east of the Triad, keeping air quality Code GREEN to start the work week. (Payne)
