PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing - Thursday, August 1, 2013
After Wednesday's evening clearing, it looks like Thursday's air quality will be fairly good. The early morning air quality should be mostly stable, but the weather forecasts diverge from about sunrise through noon. Depending on which forecast you use to predict the air quality, PM2.5 levels may go up or down, and the graph above reflects this possibility. But by noon the weather forecasts begin to agree again, and it looks as if there should be some additional clearing for the afternoon. This should drop us into Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups, Moderate, or even Good for the afternoon hours. Finally, in the evening, we can expect some increases in PM2.5 levels, but they should not be too dramatic.
