Synopsis and Discussion

AQI readings are GOOD on Sunday afternoon and the fall-like weather will persist for a couple more days. Breezy conditions should last through Monday and help to limit ozone concentrations to the mid to upper code GREEN range. Lighter winds are on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday and these decreased speeds should allow for more ozone formation. Ozone readings may push into the code YELLOW range by Wednesday with plenty of sunshine. A warming trend is expected as surface winds turn more southwesterly on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday, allowing high temperatures to reach the mid to upper 70s by Wednesday. Particle pollution should remain in the low to mid code GREEN range through midweek. (Perrotte)
