General Forecast Discussion: An H5 trough and surface front will approach the region on Thursday. With moisture values low, there is no appreciable precipitation expected. However, some clouds are expected along with the frontal passage. With low incoming background levels upwind and a clean air mass in place, air quality should maintain at Code Green levels.
The forecast Air Quality Index value for each pollutant represents the highest value expected within the forecast region, so some areas and monitors may see lower values. We use the best information and techniques available to ensure the quality and accuracy of the forecasts we provide to the public.
