Forecast Discussion: Today's Air Quality Conditions: Fine particulate concentrations remain mostly in the green category today (Friday). With the two to four inches of rain that fell over the Southern Appalachians early in the week, it appears that the wildfire activity has quickly diminished and fire hotspots have been reduced significantly. There has been no evidence of significant smoke from satellite imagery over the last couple of days. Saturday-Monday Forecast Discussion: A large area of high pressure will move through the state on Saturday. Although winds will be light with moderate trapping expected overnight Friday night, smoke from any remnant hot spots will likely reside in the immediate vicinity of Pinnacle Mountain. Moisture and clouds will increase on Saturday as the next weather system moves in from the west. Sunday and Monday will feature cloudy and wet conditions with another inch to two inches of rain to help with the ongoing firefighting efforts. Due to the increase in moisture and waning fire activity, we are not expecting significant problems with smoke through Monday. We'll continue with a code yellow in Greenville and Pickens counties from any residual fire activity that continues in that area, but code green air quality is expected elsewhere in the state.
