Synopsis and Discussion

A late start to clearing skies this morning has allowed for ozone and particle pollution levels to remain in the low to middle Code GREEN range today. Ozone levels have begin to rise this afternoon, but developing showers and thunderstorms in the Appalachians will eventually move into the Triad later this afternoon and effectively wash out any elevated air quality levels. A brief period of drier weather is on tap for Wednesday as the front associated with today's expected showers will push off to the east. Thus, air quality levels are expected to approach the upper Code GREEN range tomorrow afternoon. Another cold front moves in from the northwest late Wednesday, and will bring in colder than normal temperatures for Thursday and Friday. With that said, expect air quality levels to remain Code GREEN into the weekend. (PAYNE)
