PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, January 24, 2014
After Thursday's poor air quality, we have a good chance at greatly improved air quality on Friday. We're expecting PM2.5 levels to start dropping in the early morning hours, and we could see Good/Moderate air quality as early as 7 or 8AM. There is some chance that we will not see the pollution clear entirely, but in any case we should see Friday's AQI at lower levels than Thursday's.
SATURDAY, January 25: It looks like the good air quality could continue through the morning and possibly into the early afternoon, but we expect deteriorating conditions in the afternoon and evening.
SUNDAY, January 26: The extended forecast predicts weather conditions that are likely to give us high AQI levels. We could see a dip in the pollution between late morning and early afternoon, but we should have Unhealthy or higher PM2.5 levels for the entire day with a good chance at seeing Very Unhealthy or worse conditions.
MONDAY, January 27: Monday should bring us another chance at good air quality, most likely in the afternoon or evening.
