Forecast Discussion: With low-level moisture slow to move in across the Triad this afternoon, ozone levels have risen into the low Code YELLOW range. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop later this afternoon and move across the region through the early evening, which should gradually wash out air quality levels this evening. A brief dry period through most of the day Wednesday may cause ozone levels to rise into the upper Code GREEN range, but the dominant pollutant is expected to be particle pollution. The Triad is expected to get upstream sourcing from Tennessee and Missouri tomorrow, where particulate matter concentrations are currently elevated due to Alaskan wildfire smoke drifting in. Thus, Code YELLOW conditions are expected for particle pollution tomorrow for the Triad. Another upper level disturbance should bring a round of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon tomorrow. The increased cloud cover should keep ozone levels in the Code GREEN range, but particle pollution is expected to remain in the low Code YELLOW range as remnant wildfire smoke slowly precipitates out from the upper levels of the atmosphere. On Friday, a stalled front should provide enough cloud cover and precipitation to keep air quality levels Code GREEN. (PAYNE)
