City to Experience Fine Weather until Late August
The clear blue sky in the city right now is not a mirage, and the air quality has never been better than last August when the government implemented emission restrictions during the Universiade. Since the first week of July the city’s average daily level of fine particulate matter is at PM2.5
While in some parts of the city several monitoring stations are registering air quality fine particulate matter at 10mg per cubic meter lower which is within the air quality standards of the World Health Organization. Experts have also said that seasonal trends and favorable climate also contributed to the improvement of the air quality. The monitoring information office officials also said that southeasterly winds during the summer in the city also brought clean air from the South China Sea.
When Tropical Storm Doksuri passed the city in June the city’s PM2.5 and PM 10 level during the morning was at 100mg per cubic meter. Level gradually dropped to 38mg to 19mg per cubic meter as the storm slowly approached the city. The low Pm2.5 levels have continued to be low so for throughout July. Fine particles in the air are quicker to disperse when windy.
Residents will continue o enjoy the nice air, beautiful skies and perfect weather until late august. Although these summer air conditions is not a proper indicator for overall air quality.
