Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon, summerlike air is sweeping across the area on southwest winds. Ozone and fine particulate levels have been on the rise, with most locations presently in the moderate range. A back door cold front will cool things down temporarily over the next couple of days, before temperatures rebound late this week into the upcoming weekend. Turning out partly moonlit and mild tonight with lows only dropping to near 60 degrees. Moderate levels of fine particulate will continue. *** Tuesday's forecast: More clouds will stroll in for the day on Tuesday courtesy of a back door cold front coming down from the north. A couple of showers and a thunderstorm will occur in the afternoon and at night near this boundary. The increase in cloud cover will help to keep ozone concentrations down in the good range, but light winds and limited mixing will cause PM2.5 to remain at moderate levels. Afternoon temperatures reaching into the middle to upper 70s. Showers will still linger later on Tuesday night, but overall rain will not be heavy enough to drop fine particulate below the moderate zone. *** Extended forecast: Low levels of ozone will prevail early on in the forecast period, but these will ramp up towards the end of the week. While winds will shift into more of a northeast direction behind the cold front, the mixing should not be strong enough to clean out fine particulate below the moderate range. In fact, mid moderate range levels of PM2.5 are likely Friday into Saturday as a summertime weather pattern resumes. More clouds than sun Wednesday with highs in the lower to middle 70s, then temperatures will rebound into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees late in the week. Ozone levels Friday into Saturday will likely be well into the moderate range with a fair amount of sunshine accompanying the warm temperatures.---McAuliffe
