Forecast Discussion: Friday will be cooler, cloudy, and showery courtesy of another low pressure system moving up from the south and tracking over the forecast area. Rain showers will be heaviest in the morning and will taper off in the afternoon. Atmospheric mixing will be limited, especially in the morning, but the precipitation will be heavy enough to keep the atmosphere clean. Particles will rise slightly from Thursday’s low values, but will remain in the Good range. **Extended Forecast: Saturday will be another unsettled day, with seasonable temperatures and a mix of clouds and sun. A cold front will move through the forecast area in the late afternoon, potentially triggering a line of thunderstorms. Good air quality will continue. Sunday will be cooler and breezy as a clean and dry air mass builds in behind Saturday’s frontal passage. Breezy northwesterly winds will push particles down towards the low end of the Good range. -Huff
