Synopsis and Discussion

Outer clouds bands from the large circulation of Hurricane Maria have managed to largely stay out of the Triad today, allowing for air quality levels to rise into the upper Code GREEN range. Weak high pressure is expected to remain over the Triad tomorrow as Maria begins to slowly move away from the coast. However, northerly winds should be strong enough through the day to generate enough dispersion and keep ozone and particle pollution levels in the upper Code GREEN range. A relatively dry cold front is expected to move through the Triad tomorrow, ushering in a cleaner and cooler air mass that will settle over the state and drop air quality levels into the middle to upper Code GREEN range Thursday and Friday.
