Synopsis and Discussion

Hot temperatures and muggy conditions are hindering ozone production on Wednesday as high pressure to the west of the Triad continues to bring additional moisture to the region. Upper level patterns begin to develop a larger area of subsidence by late in the week which will likely translate into additional stagnation and higher AQI levels. For the immediate forecast, persist moisture will exist on Thursday to keep levels in the YELLOW range. Drying in the lower atmosphere may result in higher levels Friday with a quick rebound to YELLOW for the weekend. Please pay close attention to the air quality forecast if planning outdoor activities this weekend. (REAGAN)
