PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Our run of bad air continues on Wednesday. Look for Very Unhealthy or Hazardous conditions throughout the day.
THURSDAY, March 27: There is more poor air quality in store for us on Thursday. We should be at Very Unhealthy or worse in the morning, then the PM2.5 levels should drop off somewhat in the late morning and the afternoon. Despite the decreasing pollution, it is unlikely that we will see the AQI drop below Unhealthy.
FRIDAY, March 28: As of now, Friday's forecast calls for conditions that are likely to give us big reductions in the PM2.5 levels. It's hard to say for certain that we will make it all the down to Good/Moderate on Friday, but it seems very likely that we will at least dip below Unhealthy for some time around noon.
SATURDAY, March 29: Saturday looks to be a day of mixed air quality right now. Expect average (Unhealthy) or somewhat better than average conditions for Beijing on Saturday.
