Forecast Discussion: USG conditions are possible this week as high pressure across the Ohio River Valley promotes above normal temperatures and light winds in Maryland. On Monday, an upper level low from the south in conjunction with a trough from the north should produce abundant cloud cover through midday, steadily clearing thereafter. The cloud cover should keep ozone in check, though ample moisture and warm temperatures will take fine particles in to the Moderate range state wide. Hagerstown valley may see upper Moderate AQI fine particle conditions. On Tuesday, USG ozone is possible given very light winds, clear skies, and the likely development of a lee trough and bay breeze. Wednesday will also have possible USG conditions, though a threshold Moderate/USG forecast is maintained for now as questions remain concerning the strength and timing of a short-wave that could generate cloud cover and isolated storms. - MDE
