Forecast Discussion: Air quality levels are in the GREEN range as heavy showers continue to drift through the region. This low pressure storm will slowly drift across the state Monday night and pull most of the rain out of the region by Tuesday late morning. Clean air will remain in place for Tuesday as AQI readings hold in the mid GREEN range. Warmer air will fill in behind this low as temperatures jump back into the upper 70s Wednesday and mid 80s Thursday. A light southwesterly flow will help AQI readings reach the lower YELLOW range by Thursday as warmer air continues to cover the southeastern US. Saturday and Sunday could even higher on the AQI scale so stay tuned for updates. (Bodenhamer)
