Forecast Discussion: A cold front will cross the mountains later this evening, with some scattered showers and thunderstorms possibly entering the western Triad this afternoon as low-level moisture pools up east of the Appalachians. With that said, air quality levels should remain in the Code GREEN range with rain/cloud cover limiting ozone production. The aforementioned frontal boundary should slow up and stall across central North Carolina tomorrow, keeping skies generally cloudy with likely afternoon showers and storms limiting ozone and particle pollution levels from rising out of the middle Code GREEN range. The front should gradually pass east of the Triad on Wednesday to allow for more sun, but an upper level low digging southward from the Great Lakes region is expected to usher in a cooler and cleaner air mass across the area Wednesday and Thursday. Shower and storm coverage is expected to be isolated at best, but the cooler air mass should keep air quality levels from rising out of the lower to middle Code GREEN range. (PAYNE)
