Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Partly cloudy skies with the potential for showers and thunderstorms is expected tomorrow as a weak frontal boundary starts to pass through the state Tuesday evening. This will allow for ozone concentrations to hover near the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW threshold, while particle pollution concentrations will likely remain in the Code GREEN range. On Wednesday, the frontal boundary start to retrograde north, where it will stall out between the North Carolina/Virginia border by Thursday. Cloud cover will increase, from partly to mostly cloudy, by Thursday, as will the potential for showers and thunderstorms. Ozone and particle pollution concentrations will likely hover around the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW threshold on Wednesday and then drop into the Code GREEN range by Thursday as wind speeds start to pick up and cloud coverage increases.
