Triad Air Quality
Synopsis and Discussion
Air quality levels continue to be in the YELLOW range as a high pressure area remains parked off the east coast and southwest winds push mild air into the region. A cold front will slowly approach NC but this high will not be easy to move. The warmer air should continue to allow temperatures to push into the lower 70s Thursday and Friday as AQI levels hold in the mid-YELLOW range. A new low will begin to form along this front Saturday. The position of the front and location of the cold air will greatly affect the air quality for the weekend. If the cold air pushes in far enough, we could experience improved AQI readings but if it drags farther behind it could keep us in the warmer, more polluted air mass for another day or so.
