Synopsis and Discussion

Lower dewpoints have brought mild relief to the oppressive humidity the Triad has observed over the last several days, with drier air allowing for decent ozone production to elevate AQI into the low to middle Code YELLOW range. A stalled front along the Coastal Plain is expected join forces with an offshore low pressure system and move inland during the day tomorrow, increasing cloud cover and rain chances for the Triad. It is possible the bulk of the precipitation will likely stay towards the east, but cloud cover should hang on long enough to lower pollution production into the Code GREEN range for Friday. Hot and humid conditions return to the Triad for the weekend as the offshore Bermuda high takes hold over the Carolinas once again, with low Code YELLOW AQI expected through Sunday. (Payne)
