Forecast Discussion: Wednesday: A broad upper level low over Wisconsin and Michigan will move southward to the Ohio River Valley. Drier air behind Tuesday's cold front passage will clear out the skies and allow for morning temperatures to drop into the upper 50s. High temperatures will rebound to the mid 80s. Another cold front will move through the area relatively unnoticed towards the end of the day (no rain or large increase in clouds) . Winds will be from the west up to around 10 mph. Ozone is expected to be in the YELLOW range. PM2.5 is expected to be in the GREEN range. ML
