Forecast Discussion: Behind a weak cold font on Thursday cleaner, cooler and drier northerly winds help clean the air, but with ample sunshine and temperatures near normal for this time of year, ozone concentrations will remain near the Good/Moderate threshold near and south of DC and in the upper Good range elsewhere. Winds subside again under high pressure on Friday with ozone recovering region wide to the upper Good to threshold Moderate range. It will be warm and turning muggy on Saturday. Some uncertainty remains on the degree of cloud cover, but in the absence of clouds, Moderate ozone will develop along the I-95 corridor. - MDE
