    You should provide more context, but I'll take a guess.
    If you read (or sense something in the air, that means that you sense or are aware of some condition or something that is likely to happen.
    "She read a sense of panic in the air." = She sensed that those around her were in a panicked state.
    "He read a sense of urgency in the air from those at the meeting." = He sensed from those in the meeting thought that the matter (whatever it was) was urgent.
