PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Thursday, April 17, 2014
Thursday should bring us more poor air quality in Beijing. Look for increasing PM2.5 levels overnight, probably bringing us up to Very Unhealthy conditions during the morning. From there we can expect decreasing pollution through the afternoon. We will probably go lower than Unhealthy, but there is some chance that we could reach AQI readings as low as Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups during the afternoon.
FRIDAY, April 18: We’re looking for more of the same conditions on Friday. The AQI readings should be at Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy throughout the day.
SATURDAY, April 19: Saturday should bring us more poor air quality, probably worse than we have seen during the rest of the week. We have a very good chance of seeing Very Unhealthy conditions, but certainly no lower than Unhealthy.
SUNDAY, April 20: Sunday should start off with poor air quality, but there is some chance of clearing skies in the afternoon. It looks like a small chance at this point, but we will see how the weather forecast develops.
