Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: As of 2 PM on Wednesday, mostly cloudy skies prevail across the region as the showers that pushed through earlier this morning continue to move well off to our east. Right now, southwesterly flow is helping to keep dewpoints elevated in the 50s and temperatures in the mid 70s. The stronger winds today has created enough mixing within the boundary layer coupled with the cloud cover has limited ozone concentrations to the good range. Expect good air quality to persist into tomorrow as more rain moves in over the area. *** Thursday's Forecast: So for Thursday, mostly cloudy skies early will give way to partly cloudy skies late as a frontal system makes its way through the region. This front is likely to trigger some showers early on before passing through the region. On the backside of the front, slightly cooler and drier air will build in. In fact, afternoon highs will peak in the 70s. The combination of the near normal highs, the winds swinging out of the north during the afternoon and the day long cloud cover will limit ozone formation to the good range as well. --Nolan
