Forecast Discussion: Friday: Little change in the overall weather pattern with a broad trough over the eastern US. Expect another day of high temperatures in the upper 80s, partly to mostly cloudy skies, and scattered showers/storms during the afternoon through early evening hours. PM2.5 concentrations are running a tad higher than expected on Thursday and looks to be due to Saharan dust. Back trajectories for Thursday indicate air mass is originating from the southwest in the western Gulf and then back southeast towards the Caribbean where dust levels are higher. Forecast trajectories indicate a similar air mass origination on Friday so am expecting the influx of Saharan dust again. Therefore, PM2.5 is expected to be in the YELLOW range. Ozone is expected to be in the GREEN range. ML
