PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, January 3, 2014
Friday's air quality will be a significant improvement over Thursday's. Although we've seen high AQI levels on Thursday evening, the skies should clear overnight in time for us to have Good/Moderate air quality by about 8 or 9AM. Pollution levels should remain low through early afternoon, then the pollution should accumulate again over the afternoon and evening.
SATURDAY, January 4: Saturday may prove to be a volatile day for air quality, but for now, it looks most likely that we will see air quality at Unhealthy or worse for the entire day.
SUNDAY, January 5: Look for somewhat improved air quality in the morning as compared to Saturday, then deteriorating conditions in the afternoon and evening. We could see AQI levels below Unhealthy in the morning, then Unhealthy or worse from mid-afternoon through evening.
MONDAY, January 6: The poor air quality should continue through Monday with the air quality following a generally deteriorating trend throughout the day.
