Synopsis and Discussion

Particulate matter levels continue to remain in the Code YELLOW range today as weak high pressure has allowed for minimal dispersion of particle pollution. The weak ridge of high pressure will be the basis of cold air damming development tomorrow as a low pressure system moves east and pumps in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Periods of showers should help gradually wash out particulate matter concentrations and drop air quality levels into the Code GREEN range. Shower activity should gradually diminish through the day on Saturday, keeping air quality levels Code GREEN. Some compressional warming in northwest flow resulting from the departing low pressure system will likely generate fairly pleasant conditions for this time of year as air quality levels remain Code GREEN.
