Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: Brisk westerly winds with good low level ventilation are keeping fine particulate levels down in the good range this Monday afternoon. Seasonably cold tonight under a mostly cloudy sky as temperatures fall back into the middle 20s. *** Tuesday's forecast: Breezy west to northwesterly winds on Tuesday will mean a continuation of low values of PM2.5. Skies will turn out mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the middle 30s. *** Extended forecast: High pressure building into the northeastern part of the nation will keep the weather dry during the mid and late week period with the next weather system not expected to affect the area until Saturday or Saturday night with a bit of rain and snow possible. A northerly flow will keep low fine particulate values on Wednesday, but increases in particulate matter are likely later on in the week with winds weakening, inversions increasing, and dispersion decreasing.---McAuliffe
