PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Friday, March 28, 2014
It took longer than we expected, but we finally saw the skies clear a bit on Thursday afternoon. After we see the pollution move back up overnight, you can expect the PM2.5 levels to drop off again on Friday. It will likely be between noon and about 6PM when we finally drop down into Good/Moderate AQI readings.
SATURDAY, March 29: Friday’s good air quality should carry over into Saturday morning, but look for the PM2.5 levels to start moving up again after noon. We will certainly reach Unhealthy and possibly Very Unhealthy before the day is over.
SUNDAY, March 30: Sunday’s forecast is fairly uncertain at this point. There is no indication of clearing skies, so we can expect Unhealthy or worse air quality throughout the day.
MONDAY, March 31: We are expecting poor air quality again on Monday. Look for Unhealthy or higher AQI levels throughout the day, although we may see slightly improved conditions in the afternoon.
