PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, March 14, 2014
Thursday was a wonderful surprise with its good air quality, and Friday is also looking promising. We expect Good or Moderate air quality in the morning, but it's unclear how long the good air will stay here. The pollution should start to increase at some point in the afternoon, but if we're lucky the clear air will be with us for most of the day.
SATURDAY, March 15: There is some chance of decent air in the morning, but that looks like a very small chance. Even if it does occur, we should move back up into Unhealthy and probably higher in the afternoon and evening.
SUNDAY, March 16: We’re expecting poor air quality on Sunday, most likely at Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy throughout the day.
MONDAY, March 17: The clear air should be back on Monday - look for the air to clear between about 6AM and 10AM.
