Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: As of 2 PM on Tuesday, overcast skies persist over the region as a wave of precipitation moves in over our area. For the most part, the precipitation remains either sleet or freezing rain as it continues to fall in an area where surface temperatures are below freezing. The influx of moisture into the region along with warmer air aloft (which is changing the precipitation from snow to sleet and freezing rain) is helping to keep PM 2.5 levels within the low moderate range today. Expect moderate air quality to persist for one more day tomorrow as an even warmer air mass builds in over our area. *** Wednesday's Forecast: So for Wednesday, expect mostly cloudy skies to persist during the day as a cold front approaches our area. Moisture moving along the front will produce rain initially over the region. As the front pushes through our area during the second half of the day, expect colder air to begin to filter in. Moisture will continue to stream in from the south, allowing the precipitation to change from rain to snow. Overall, temperatures should peak in the low 40s. The combination of the warm temperatures and the increased moisture early in the day will help to keep PM 2.5 levels within the low moderate category. *** Extended Outlook: Over the coming days, expect to see temperatures fall early in the period. However, there will be rebound to more seasonable levels late in the period. Here is how things are shaping up... On Thursday, snow will continue to fall as colder air filters in. The driver of the cold air, an area of high pressure over the Plains, will gradually shift east over the next couple of days. By the weekend, the high pressure will be along the East Coast. This new positioning of the high will allow warmer air to begin to build in. The high will then shift out into the Atlantic. This will allow even warmer air to build early next week. Overall, air quality levels are expected to drop early in the period as the colder air filters in. Once the warm air begins to return and force temperatures near normal, PM 2.5 levels are likely to rebound back into the moderate range. --Nolan
