Synopsis and Discussion

Cold air damming has kept the Triad under a cold and cloudy air mass today, keeping air quality levels within the middle Code GREEN range. The Triad also remains under a conveyor belt of moisture that persists within the weakness between two high pressure ridges. Rain chances increase tomorrow as a plume of moisture moves into the Triad, which should aid in keeping particulate matter concentrations well within the Code GREEN range for Thursday. Rain eventually tapers off to the east early Friday as the cold front pushes through, allowing a dry and cold high pressure ridge to push southeastward into the Carolinas. Air quality levels will continue to remain well within the Code GREEN range into the weekend as the dry high pressure ridge remains the dominant weather feature. (Payne)
