The story for Thursday should be poor air quality in the morning, then improving air quality for the rest of the day. We're expecting the skies to clear for Friday, and if we're lucky we will see some of that clear air late on Thursday.
FRIDAY, May 2: Friday should be a great day, with Good/Moderate air quality during the day, but there is a chance of increasing pollution levels in the evening.
SATURDAY, May 3: The PM2.5 levels should be rising on Saturday morning, but the skies should clear again during the late afternoon or the evening.
SUNDAY, May 4: We're expecting another great day on Sunday in Beijing with Good/Moderate AQI readings.
