Forecast Discussion: Partly cloudy skies and drier conditions are expected to continue on Saturday as the surface high continues to influence the Triad region. With light winds allowing for accumulation to occur, moderate air quality is expected on Saturday, with both ozone and particulate matter levels in the Code YELLOW range. As southeasterly winds start to slowly pump moisture into the region, cloud cover will start to increase on Sunday, however, ozone concentrations will likely still remain in the Code YELLOW range. Light, looping surface winds will continue to keep particle pollution concentrations elevated in the Code YELLOW range. Similar conditions are expected to continue into the work week, which will likely hold both ozone and particle pollution concentrations in the Code YELLOW range on Monday. (BRAY)
