PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Wednesday, January 1, 2014
2014 promises to come in on a pleasant note as we should see Good/Moderate air for the early part of the day. But we can't expect it to last as we should see PM2.5 levels accumulate in the late afternoon and evening.
THURSDAY, January 2: The prevailing conditions of the past few weeks that have given us clear air will likely not be in effect today. Look for air quality that is no better than Moderate in the morning, then gradually becoming worse throughout the day with higher pollution levels in the late afternoon and evening.
FRIDAY, January 3: There is a good chance of clearing skies in the morning, then deteriorating air quality again in the evening. This might be a day with some big changes in pollution levels throughout the day.
SATURDAY, January 4: From this far out, Saturday's air quality is difficult to predict. But from here, it looks most likely that we will see air quality at Unhealthy or worse, although it does not appear very likely that we will see extremely high AQI levels.
