Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
The song remains the same as high pressure ridging continues to hold over the Triad, with light winds allowing for little dispersion of particulates to keep air quality levels in the Code YELLOW range. The high pressure ridge will continue to hold over the area through Saturday, and the recirculation of elevated particle pollution levels due to light/variable surface winds should keep air quality levels in the low Code YELLOW range. By Sunday, a cold front is expected to move into the Carolinas, increasing cloud cover and light rain chances. However, the front isn't expected to be very strong and will likely progress slowly enough to keep particle pollution levels in the low Code YELLOW range. (PAYNE)
