Forecast Discussion: On Tuesday, a front stalls across the area. Enough cloud cover, and slightly drier and cleaner air immediately behind the front will keep ozone within the Moderate range. Conditions on Wednesday currently look cloudy enough to the prevent buildup of local emissions which could lead to USG ozone conditions, thus Moderate AQI is forecast. Wednesday will continue to be monitored though as winds will be recirculating late in the day, thus any breaks in cloud cover would increase ozone quickly. An area of disturbed weather on Thursday will provide cloud cover and afternoon and/or evening pockets of rain keeping ozone in check in the low Moderate range. Fine particles will persist near the low-Moderate AQI range all three days. -MDE
