Synopsis and Discussion

The low pressure system that brought the Triad an abundance of rain yesterday remains situated off the mid-Atlantic coastline, where it continues to bring enough cloud cover and dispersion to keep air quality levels Code GREEN today. The aforementioned low will move off to the northeast and weaken, allowing for high pressure to build across the southeastern United States tonight and Saturday. With plentiful sun and rising temperatures, ozone and particle pollution levels are expected to reach middle to upper Code GREEN by Saturday afternoon. A backdoor frontal boundary stalling over the state on Sunday will increase cloud cover and chances of rain, which should keep air quality levels in the middle to upper Code GREEN range. The boundary is expected to retreat north on Monday as high pressure strengthens offshore, generating enough warming across the Triad to elevate air quality levels into the upper Code GREEN range.
