Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Cold air damming continues to hold across the Triad today, with cloud cover stubbornly refusing to erode while keeping air quality levels in the low to middle Code GREEN range. Eventually the cold air wedge will erode this evening as northwesrtly winds aloft gradually scour out the clouds. Skies should be generally sunny Monday and Tuesday as high pressure takes hold across the southeast, causing air quality levels to build into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. A low pressure system brings rain to the Triad on Wednesday, dropping ozone and particle pollution levels back into the low to middle Code GREEN range. (PAYNE)
