Forecast Discussion: Air quality levels are slowly increasing Thursday afternoon as winds remain out of the north. These winds will shift around to the southwest and push pollution emitted earlier in the day here in the Triad right back over our region. This should produce a late peak for Ozone in the lower YELLOW range. The southwest winds should also allow Particle Pollution readings to increase into the YELLOW range for Friday. Rain showers should also arrive Friday morning and help limit Ozone production but Particle Pollution values will hold in the YELLOW range despite the rain. Sunny skies will return Saturday and help keep AQI readings in the YELLOW range as Ozone responds quickly to the return of clear skies. (Bodenhamer)
