PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Saturday, February 8, 2014
Saturday should bring us clear skies to go with the freshly fallen snow in Beijing. We're expecting PM2.5 levels at Unhealthy or the low range of Very Unhealthy overnight, then we should see the pollution starting to clear between about 6AM and noon. We could see Good/Moderate air quality as early as 10AM, but certainly no later than 4 or 5PM.
SUNDAY, February 9: The air should remain clear during the day on Sunday, then we could see the pollution start to accumulate again in the evening.
MONDAY, February 10: The weather forecasts for Monday make it hard to predict from this far out. Right now, it looks like we should have lower pollution levels than average with the best air quality in the morning.
TUESDAY, February 11: Look for poor air quality on Tuesday, with a decent chance for Very Unhealthy or worse AQI levels, particularly in the morning hours.
