Tuesday should be a big improvement compared to Monday's air quality. We should see generally decreasing or stable AQI readings for most of the day, then we should see the pollution start to accumulate again in the late afternoon and evening.
WEDNESDAY, April 16: We will probably be back to conditions similar to this past weekend on Wednesday: there is a good chance that we will see Very Unhealthy conditions in the morning, then some clearing that brings us down to Unhealthy in the afternoon.
THURSDAY, April 17: Thursday should start off at Unhealthy or higher AQI readings, but there is now a chance that we could see clearing skies in the afternoon. If the current forecast holds, we should see no worse than Unhealthy conditions in the afternoon and evening, and there is a decent chance that we could drop down to Good or Moderate levels during that time.
FRIDAY, April 18: We could see good conditions carry over into Friday morning, but the AQI should be on the rise by the afternoon. We can expect to see Unhealthy conditions before the day is over.
