Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality is very GOOD on Thursday with steady rainfall observed across the Triad. A cold front will sweep through on Friday, drying conditions out by the afternoon and evening. The air mass behind the front does contain some smoke and based on upstream surface observations, some of it may be reaching the surface. There is the potential for particulate matter concentrations to push toward the upper code GREEN range for the next couple of days due to the embedded smoke. Ozone readings may also rebound to the upper code GREEN range by this weekend. It will be a fall-like air mass moving in with low humidity and high temperatures in the mid 60s. Low temperatures may even fall into the upper 40s in some places this weekend. (Perrotte)
