PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Saturday, January 4, 2014
Saturday looks like it will be a day with serious volatility in air quality. We should spend the day almost entirely at Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy AQI levels, but we could dip down into Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups around late morning or early afternoon if we're lucky.
SUNDAY, January 5: Look for improved air quality in the morning as compared to Saturday, then deteriorating conditions in the afternoon and evening. We should see AQI levels at Good/Moderate in the morning, then things should deteriorate to Unhealthy or worse from mid-afternoon through evening.
MONDAY, January 6: The air quality should continue to deteriorate through Monday, leaving us with Unhealthy or worse conditions for the entire day.
TUESDAY, January 7: We should see poor air quality carry over through the morning, then it's likely that we will see clearing skies in the afternoon or evening.
