Forecast Discussion: Air quality has been good over the last three days. Readings this morning are good, and there is no reason to change the forecast for today. A west and northwest wind will keep temperatures cooler through the weekend. Colder temperatures aloft will allow for clouds to stick around on Friday. A weak high pressure system will move across the Ohio River valley on Saturday. A weak upper level trough is forecasted to move through the area on Sunday, which could bring some light snow Sunday morning. Upper level ridging will follow this system, allowing for a small warmup on Monday.
