Forecast Discussion: Particle pollution climbed slightly into the mid GREEN range overnight and into Friday as clouds prevented vertical mixing. The disturbance, responsible for the clouds, will exit the region later Friday as cold, clean, arctic high pressure slides into the area. Air quality levels will drop back into the lower GREEN range Saturday and Sunday with this air mass in place. By Monday, clouds and wintery weather will return as a potent disturbance pushes into the state. Particle pollution will remain low under this scenario to start the work week (GENTRY).
