PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, March 21, 2014
After a great day on Thursday, we're looking for the pollution to accumulate again on Friday. The good air quality may hang around for a few hours in the morning, but we can expect to be back into Unhealthy air quality as early as mid-morning, and almost certainly before the day is over.
SATURDAY, March 22: Saturday's forecast is uncertain at this point. Under one weather forecast, we could see Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups or better air quality throughout the day. But under the other scenario, we should spend most of Saturday at Unhealthy AQI levels. We'll hope for more clarity in the forecast tomorrow.
SUNDAY, March 23: Sunday’s air quality is likely to be worse than Saturday’s. We are expecting Unhealthy or higher AQI levels throughout the day.
MONDAY, March 24: Monday should be another day with poor air quality. There is a good chance that we will see Very Unhealthy AQI levels in the morning, and we expect no better than Unhealthy AQI levels throughout the day.
