Forecast Discussion: A cold front will slowly move through Delaware on Wednesday, triggering periods of rain all day. Temperatures will rise to near normal in the southerly flow ahead of the front. Overcast skies ample atmospheric humidity will allow particle concentrations to continue in the mid-Moderate range. **Extended Forecast: The front will sag across the southern Mid-Atlantic region on Thursday. A disturbance will move along the front and keep wintery precipitation falling over Delaware. As cold air filters in behind the frontal passage, rain will change to sleet and then snow overnight Thursday, and snow will continue through the late afternoon, with up to 5 inches of accumulation possible. As precipitation cleans out the atmosphere, particle concentrations will decrease but remain in the Moderate range. An Arctic high pressure system will build into the Mid-Atlantic region on Friday. It will be sunny and dry but cold. Particle concentrations should fall into the upper Good range in the clean and dry air mass, but if there is a fresh layer of snow on the ground, a morning surface inversion could form and allow Moderate air quality to continue. -Huff
