PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Thursday, February 27, 2014
Our clear air arrived a bit early on Wednesday evening, so we're set for Good or Moderate air quality overnight and into Thursday morning. The clear skies can't last forever though, so look for the PM2.5 to start accumulating again by mid- to late-afternoon.
FRIDAY, February 28: The pollution should accumulate again on Friday, and we can expect no better than Unhealthy air quality. There is some chance we will see Very Unhealthy levels at some point in the day, but we expect the AQI to go no higher than that.
SATURDAY, March 1: The pollution should remain elevated on Saturday morning, but it should level out in the afternoon and possibly clear somewhat in the evening.
SUNDAY, March 2: Pollution levels should tick back up again on Sunday, leaving us with Unhealthy or worse AQIs throughout the day.
