Forecast Discussion: Today marks the last day of the 2014 ozone forecasting season for the Triad. We will resume ozone forecasts for the Triad in 2015 beginning on April 1st. Increasing clouds ahead of a cold front are expected to keep air quality levels in the middle Code GREEN range through today and into the evening. An upper level low moves in from the northwest this evening and pushes the aforementioned front through the Triad late tonight and into Saturday morning. This unseasonably cold upper low cuts off from the main upper level flow and ushers in breezy and rainy conditions (with possible frozen precipitation mixed in) late this evening and throughout the day Saturday as it moves over the Carolinas. With that said, particle pollution levels should bottom out in the low Code GREEN range Saturday. The upper low departs the Triad on Sunday and high pressure builds in from the west. Despite an abundance of sun on Sunday, particle pollution levels will likely be slow to rebound and should remain in the low Code GREEN range. We should begin to slowly warm up Monday as the high pushes off towards the east of the Triad by the afternoon, causing particle pollution levels to edge up into the low to middle Code GREEN range.
