Synopsis and Discussion

Despite ample solar radiation and mostly sunny skies, higher dewpoints and low weekend emissions have kept air quality levels in the upper Code GREEN range. More of the same is expected for tomorrow, though southwest winds are expected to increase through the day with the approach of a cold front from the northwest. Thus, the increase in low-level dispersion should counteract the typical increase in weekday emissions to kept ozone and particle pollution levels in the upper Code GREEN range. Widespread showers on Tuesday should allow for air quality levels to fall into the low to middle Code GREEN range. Dry high pressure then builds in from the northwest on Wednesday to allow ozone levels to slowly rise into the middle to upper Code GREEN range. (Payne)
