Synopsis and Discussion

Skies remain partly sunny at best this afternoon, with chances of rain expected on and off through the day to keep air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range. With high pressure remaining offshore, the Triad resides in the path of a series of upper level disturbances that are expected to traverse the area the next few days. Breaks in precipitation may lead to some sun peeking through the cloud deck and cause ozone and particle pollution production to increase. However, these breaks should be far and few between and will likely keep air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range Monday and Tuesday. The stalled frontal boundary associated with the rain will finally push off to the east on Wednesday, allowing for skies to gradually clear and cause air quality levels to rise into the upper Code GREEN range.
