PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Sunday, April 6, 2014
After a great day on Saturday, we should be back to average conditions for Beijing on Sunday. We should see increasing PM2.5 levels overnight and into the morning, with the AQI probably peaking around mid-morning. From there, we should see the pollution levels decrease somewhat through the afternoon - if we're lucky, we could drop back down to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups, or we could remain at Unhealthy for the rest of the day.
MONDAY, April 7: Monday is likely to be the worst day of the 3-day weekend. We expect to see poor air quality again on Monday with the AQI at Unhealthy or higher, most likely at Very Unhealthy or higher.
TUESDAY, April 8: Tuesday is likely to be very similar to Monday with poor air quality and AQI readings at Unhealthy or higher.
WEDNESDAY, April 9: The poor air quality should continue in the morning, but we should see clearing skies in the afternoon.
