Synopsis and Discussion

Clouds and some showers have helped to delay the formation of ozone on Monday. Maximum 8-hour averages will likely remain in the upper code GREEN range as a result. Particle pollution concentrations are also in the code GREEN range today. Southerly flow out ahead of an approaching cold front will allow for warmer temperatures on Tuesday. With sunny skies promoted by weak transient high pressure, ozone and fine particle pollution may both reach the lower code YELLOW range on Tuesday. The aforementioned cold front will pass through during the first half of Wednesday. Skies should clear out quickly and moderate winds will transport a chilly, clean air mass into the region. AQI readings are expected to remain in the code GREEN range on both Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure begins to build in. (Perrotte)
