Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Cloudy skies Wednesday morning has limited ozone production to code GREEN but light winds and little air mass mixing have pushed particle pollution to MODERATE levels. Winds will remain light, Thursday, leading to additional stagnation and higher, code YELLOW, particle pollution. A strong cold front will approach the region Friday. Stronger winds, ahead of the front, along with precipitation, later Friday evening, will drop the AQI back to the lower YELLOW range. A MUCH cooler, cleaner air mass will arrive Saturday resulting in a return to GOOD, code GREEN air quality (GENTRY).
