Forecast Discussion: Wednesday: An upper level low will move southeast from the central Gulf coastline to near the Florida Keys. Moisture will wrap around the low to keep overcast skies in place all day long and light showers during the morning hours. Winds will be easterly around 5 mph. The rainfall will help to decrease PM2.5 concentrations. However, not enough rain will fall to drop PM2.5 out of the YELLOW range with only weak atmospheric mixing expected and the lack of a frontal passage. ML
