Forecast Discussion: A weak cold front will move across the region on Tuesday which will cause northeasterly winds and “reverse-corridor” transport. Even though upstream pollutant concentrations are low, reverse-corridor transport is favorable for high ozone concentrations in northeastern Maryland. Additionally, locations immediately southwest of Baltimore and DC will see locally higher ozone concentrations. Therefore, a Moderate ozone AQI forecast will be maintained, though most areas will benefit from improved (Good) air quality behind the front. On Wednesday USG ozone is possible. As a new cold front approaches from the northwest, a tropical storm will make its way northeastward just off the eastern shore of Maryland. Between these two features, light winds, sunny skies, and anticipated subsidence will support rising ozone and at least upper Moderate ozone air quality. The cold front pushes through by Thursday and significantly lowers temperatures, improving air quality to the Good range. -MDE
