PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Wednesday, February 26, 2014
Our streak of very poor air quality should extend for just one more day in Beijing. We should see Hazardous or Beyond Index AQI levels throughout the day, but we should see some decrease in the pollution in the evening. If we're lucky, the pollution will blow out before midnight, but it should be gone by sunrise on Thursday at the latest.
THURSDAY, February 27: We're looking for Good or Moderate AQI readings on Thursday morning and afternoon, but we could see the pollution start to build up again in the evening.
FRIDAY, February 28: The pollution should accumulate again on Friday. We can expect no better than Unhealthy air quality, and there is a good chance we will see Very Unhealthy levels at some point in the day. So far there is no sign that we will see the Hazardous air quality from recent days.
SATURDAY, March 1: We could see the pollution continue to accumulate on Saturday morning, but the pollution should level out in the afternoon and possibly clear in the evening.
