Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EST this Tuesday afternoon, a weak cool front was crossing into western Pennsylvania, but this will likely wash out before it reaches us tonight. Most locations remain in the good range with respect to fine particulate, but a few locations remain low moderate. Tonight will turn out mostly cloudy and on the mild side as low temperatures will not drop below 40 degrees. *** Wednesday's forecast: Morning cloudiness will yield to some afternoon sunshine Wednesday. A southwesterly flow will allow temperatures to move into the lower 60s, but the flow should be light enough to where fine particulate is in the moderate range. Partly to mostly cloudy and rather mild Wednesday night with temperatures in the middle and upper 40s. *** Extended forecast: Much milder than normal weather will continue into the late week period with a south to southwesterly flow. Afternoon temperatures Thursday and Friday may spike to near 70 degrees with clouds and a little sunshine each day. A stronger cold front than what we have seen recently will move through later Saturday into Saturday night with showers and perhaps a thunderstorm accompanying it. Cooler and more seasonable weather will follow for Sunday. Fine particulate levels will be moderate most of the extended period, but improve to good levels behind the cold front by Sunday.---McAuliffe
