Synopsis and Discussion

Hot and humid conditions are likely to continue through the end of the work week. A surface high pressure system to the north/northwest will bring partly cloudy skies to the region tomorrow, however, there is the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Ozone concentrations will likely hover near the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW threshold, depending on when and where convection occurs, while particle pollution levels will likely stay within the upper Code GREEN range on Wednesday. As a disturbance aloft passes over the area and a surface trough develops over western North Carolina, partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected both Thursday and Friday, and there is the slight potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Increased cloud cover will likely reduce ozone concentrations back into the upper Code GREEN range. Particle pollution concentrations may slowly elevate through the period into the upper Code GREEN/lower Code YELLOW range due to weak winds and the dirty air mass in place, however, any thunderstorm activity in the area will likely drop concentrations into the Code GREEN range.
