Synopsis and Discussion

Sunny skies, warm temperatures, and lower humidity are leading to increased ozone production, throughout the Triad. Values will reach the mid to upper code YELLOW range by the end of the day. Particle pollution is starting to slowly increase, as well, and will push to the upper end of code GREEN. A few more clouds and a slight chance of thunderstorms, Thursday, will help to temper ozone enough to keep levels in the low to mid code YELLOW category. Particle pollution may also return to low code YELLOW. The hottest temperatures of the season return Friday and Saturday along with higher, upper code YELLOW ozone. There is a slight potential for higher ozone, Friday, therefore, conditions will be closely monitored and upgraded if needed. A bit more moisture, Saturday, will help to keep ozone in the mid to upper code YELLOW range. Particle pollution will also remain code YELLOW Friday and Saturday under the stagnant air mass (GENTRY).
