Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels continue to be in the GREEN range as cooler air presses in from the north. Winds should remain our of the northwest but winds speeds may decrease over the next day or so. High pressure continues to be centered over the Great Lakes region but will slide eastward over the next couple days. A low will begin to develop in the deep south and track across Georgia and then out to sea by Saturday. Moisture could reach far enough north to produce a cold rain here in the Triad for Saturday. Areas to the north could see a little snow. An upper level trough over the eastern US will only intensify over the next couple weeks and that generally points to lower AQI levels. (Bodenhamer)
