Synopsis and Discussion

Particle pollution levels started off within the Code YELLOW range early this morning, but cleaner air moving in from the northwest has lowered particulate matter concentrations this afternoon to keep air quality Code GREEN for the rest of the day. High pressure will continue to build in from the northwest and settle over the Triad tomorrow, allowing for particulate matter concentrations to build up into the lower Code YELLOW range. Wetter conditions are expected to prevail as we progress into the weekend. Scattered precipitation on Friday will likely compress particulate matter concentrations closer to the surface, resulting in another day of air quality levels in the Code YELLOW range. After a brief break in rain, a more potent wave of energy moves in from the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday to help bring widespread showers to the Triad and lower air quality levels to Code GREEN.
