Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Tuesday afternoon, an area of low pressure over central Virginia was bringing rain and rain showers to the region. The low pressure area will head out to sea later on tonight, allowing for clearing by morning as high pressure slowly builds in from the northwest. Winds and rainfall remain too light this afternoon to allow for PM2.5 concentrations to drop below the moderate range. Tonight, any showers will come to an end this evening, then skies will clear later on tonight. Increasing northwesterly winds later on will also bring fine particulate levels down to the good range. *** Wednesday's forecast: High pressure building southeastward into the area from the Great Lakes will bring a mostly sunny, but breezy day on Wednesday. Ample mixing and dry air will keep fine particulate in the good range. Afternoon temperatures will rise into the middle 50s, which is close to normal for late March. Mainly clear and cold Wednesday night with temperatures dropping close to the 30 degree mark. *** Extended forecast: We will experience periods of dry weather over the long range period, but also periods where the weather is wet and unsettled. The first of these unsettled periods will come Friday into Friday night with periods of rain. The next will come sometime Tuesday of next week with another low pressure area coming out of the Midwest. The best chances for moderate air quality will come on Thursday as well as Monday of next week, otherwise good air quality should prevail.---McAuliffe
