Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Wednesday afternoon, there are some breaks in the clouds across the area. Some locations are nearing the moderate range for ozone with the increase in sunshine, but an onshore flow continues to keep fine particulate in the good range. Our weather will be rather unsettled later on tonight into the day Thursday as low pressure tracks northeastward across Pennsylvania. *** Thursday's forecast: Rain will overspread the area later on tonight, and continue into the midday hours of Thursday. A thunderstorm is even possible Thursday afternoon. With a considerable amount of clouds and an onshore flow, fine particulate and ozone will be in the good range. Clouds will break up some Thursday night with a leftover shower. *** Extended forecast: Breezy for the day Friday with more clouds than sunshine, and a shower is still possible. Ozone and fine particulate will remain in the good range due to the arrival of a clean air mass. Times of clouds and sunshine for Saturday, and with lighter winds and mild air, air quality may go moderate for ozone and fine particulate. Another weather system then comes in for Sunday into Sunday night, with plenty of clouds along with showers and thunderstorms. Memorial Day will bring the return of some sun, but a shower cannot be ruled out. Ozone and fine particulate will average in the upper good to lower moderate range most of the holiday weekend.---McAuliffe
