Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Tuesday afternoon, a stalled out cold front is draped to our south across West Virginia. This front will eventually come back northward into the area, but will wait until later on in the week to do so. With a decent amount of sun this afternoon, ozone concentrations are moving to low moderate levels as temperatures rise into the middle and upper 80s. PM2.5 has mixed out to the good range in most areas, but some will have particle concentrations in the lower moderate range overall today. Partly cloudy this evening, then more clouds coming in later on tonight with lows in the middle 60s. *** Wednesday's forecast: High pressure will bring clouds and some sunshine to the area for Wednesday. Light winds will act to cause particles to build up, and some will be moderate. In addition, ozone production will also be in the lower to middle moderate range. Highs similar to today in the middle and upper 80s. *** Extended forecast: As we move into the latter part of this week, the weather will take a turn for the unsettled. More clouds than sunshine for Thursday with an increasing shower or thunderstorm possibility. Particles will remain at moderate levels, but ozone production could be stymied and be held in the upper good range. Waves of low pressure may also form and move along the stationary front to our south Friday into Saturday with additional chances for rain and thunder. Lower levels of ozone and cooler temperatures by day will result. Fine particulate will remain mostly moderate during this period owing to humid conditions.---McAuliffe
