Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: An area of high pressure located over New York state is bringing very nice weather this Monday afternoon, with both fine particulate and ozone still in the good range. Tonight, a warm front to our south will start to move northward, with areas of rain late. *** Tuesday's forecast: Overcast for the day Tuesday with periods of rain, and even a thunderstorm in spots. Considerable clouds and rampant rains will keep fine particulate and ozone down in the good range. *** Extended forecast: An extended period of tranquil weather is in store for the mid to late week period, thanks to an area of high pressure building in from the Midwest and settling to our south late this week. Ozone levels will start out this period in the good range, but will likely go moderate by week's end with reduced low level flow, sunshine, and temperatures in the middle 80s. Fine particulate will be in the good range to start this period, but buildups of this pollutant to the moderate range are possible late this week as surface flow lightens and relative humidity increases.---McAuliffe
