Forecast Discussion: Light and variable winds in conjunction with pollution precursor sourcing from yesterday's elevated air quality levels in the Ohio Valley region have allowed for air quality levels to rise into the mid to upper Code YELLOW range today. A weak surface front will move into the Triad later this afternoon and may usher in a weak cold air wedge across the area tomorrow. Increasing clouds as a result of the weak wedge will likely result in ozone and particle pollution levels dropping into the lower Code YELLOW range Friday. The upper level ridge moves offshore Saturday and generates warm, moist onshore flow across the Carolinas to cause ozone levels to drop into the upper Code GREEN range. Warm, moist southerly to southwesterly flow continues on Sunday and increasing storm chances in the afternoon should cause air quality levels to fall back into the upper Code GREEN range. (PAYNE)
