Forecast Discussion: Air quality levels remain in the GREEN range Wednesday as an upper level ridge departs from the east coast and a trough slowly approaches from the west. Much colder air will begin to push in from the northwest as this upper level trough slides to the east. Both, high temperatures and low temperatures, will be 20 degrees lower starting Friday as this colder air mass drifts into the east coast. Our air quality levels will remain in the GREEN range throughout the forecast period as wind speeds increase and cleaner air sweeps into NC. (Bodenhamer)
