PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Wednesday, April 9, 2014
We have more poor air quality in store for us on Wednesday morning, but we may get some relief in the afternoon. We should move back up into Very Unhealthy overnight and into the early morning, but we should see the PM2.5 levels start to drop off by about mid-morning. There is a good chance that we could drop down all the way to Good or Moderate AQI levels by about noon, but there is also a chance that we will only make it down to Unhealthy at the lowest point of the day. We’ll hope for the best!
THURSDAY, April 10: We should see a return to poor air quality on Thursday, with the AQI at Unhealthy or higher throughout the day. As is usual for this time of year, we are likely to see somewhat better air quality in the afternoon than in the morning.
FRIDAY, April 11: We’re in for more poor air quality on Friday, likely worse than on Thursday. We should see the AQI no lower than Unhealthy, and there is a good chance that we will see periods at Very Unhealthy.
SATURDAY, April 12: We’re looking for yet another day with poor air quality on Saturday. It looks like we should see Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy conditions throughout the day.
