PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, April 25, 2014
Thursday afternoon did not give us the improved air quality we were hoping for, but Friday's forecast is looking promising. We should see Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy conditions overnight and into Friday morning, but we should see the skies start to clear by late Friday afternoon or evening.
SATURDAY, April 26: After the clearing on Friday evening, there is a good chance we will start off Saturday morning with Good/Moderate air quality, but we can expect increasing pollution levels throughout the day, probably leaving us at Unhealthy conditions before the day is over.
SUNDAY, April 27: Sunday looks to be a mixed day. On the whole, the AQI readings should be better than the average day in Beijing, and there is some chance of Good/Moderate air quality on Sunday morning. But don't be surprised to see Unhealthy AQI readings at any point in the day.
MONDAY, April 28: Monday is a bit hard to call at this point, but it does appear very unlikely that the AQI will climb any higher than Unhealthy at any time during the day.
