PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Thursday, March 27, 2014
After several days with very poor air quality, we're expecting just a little bit of relief on Thursday. We should see the PM2.5 levels start to drop off overnight, then settle in between about 125 and 225 on the AQI index after noon. We don't expect to see Good air quality on Thursday, but it will definitely be better than we have experienced over the last few days.
FRIDAY, March 28: The pollution levels will likely bounce back up overnight, but we have a very good chance of seeing Good/Moderate air quality arrive between late morning and early afternoon. Once the pollution clears out, we should have clear skies for the rest of the day.
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.
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.
