PM2.5 Forecast for Beijing – Monday, April 7, 2014
All the variables came together for a better-than-expected Sunday, but Monday is unlikely to provide the same experience. We're expecting increasing PM2.5 levels overnight that should leave us at Unhealthy or Very Unhealthy in the morning. From there we should see a reduction in the pollution into the afternoon, but it's unlikely that we will see better than Unhealthy readings in the afternoon and evening.
TUESDAY, April 8: Tuesday is likely to be very similar to Monday with poor air quality and AQI readings at Unhealthy or higher, but the afternoon clearing could be more significant than on Monday.
WEDNESDAY, April 9: The poor air quality should continue in the morning, but we have a chance at clearing skies in the late afternoon.
THURSDAY, April 10: Thursday's pollution forecast is inconclusive at the moment, but for right now, it looks like we should spend most of the day at Unhealthy.
