Just a short (and late) forecast for Saturday. We've seen very poor air quality this morning by summer standards, but we're likely to see those PM2.5 readings drop a bit in the afternoon. It's unlikely we'll see conditions better than Unhealthy before the day is over.
SUNDAY, June 1: We’re still looking at the
chance for good air quality on Sunday morning. It’s still probably a long shot, but it's probably fair to say that conditions should at least be better than Saturday's conditions. So, look for conditions somewhere between Good and the lower ranges of Unhealthy for Sunday morning, then the pollution should slowly accumulate again in the afternoon.
MONDAY, June 2: Monday should take us back to about average AQI readings for Beijing in the summer, so you can expect to see Unhealthy conditions for almost the entire day.
TUESDAY, June 3: We’re expecting another day with about
average conditions on Tuesday, so look for Unhealthy AQI readings for
most of the day with a chance of elevated pollution levels during the early morning hours.
