Synopsis and Discussion

Air quality levels have returned to the GREEN range as light northwest winds push more polluted air south and east of the Triad. Winds are shifting around to the south and southwest for Friday as high pressure drifts east. This should allow the more polluted air to recirculate back into the Triad for Friday. A low pressure storm will also develop in the southern plains and approach the state Saturday afternoon. Prefrontal winds will help keep AQI readings in the lower YELLOW range for Saturday before much colder air blasts in behind this system and produces air quality in the GREEN range. (Bodenhamer)
