PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Monday, March 24, 2014
We're in for another rough day on Monday as it looks like we should spend most of the day at Very Unhealthy or Hazardous. Look for the pollution to peak fairly early in the morning and then drop off into the afternoon.
TUESDAY, March 25: Although Tuesday is likely to be another poor air quality day, the chance of some clearing in the morning is still there. If the air does clear early on Tuesday morning, we should see Unhealthy AQIs for much of the day, but otherwise we will be expecting Very Unhealthy or higher AQIs.
WEDNESDAY, March 26: We’re looking for more poor air quality on Wednesday, with a good chance at Very Unhealthy air quality for much of the day.
THURSDAY, March 27: There is more poor air quality in store for us on Thursday. We should be at Very Unhealthy or worse in the morning, then the PM2.5 level should drop off somewhat in the afternoon (although it almost certainly will not go below Unhealthy).
