Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: As of 2 PM on Monday, the sky is becoming increasingly cloudy (from west to east) as a cold front advances toward the region. The movement of the cold front east into warmer, more humid air has triggered showers to develop over the far western metro area. Prior to the cloud cover working in, temperatures were able to make their way toward the 80 degree mark. PM 2.5 levels were never able to fully rebound from falling over the weekend, which is why levels continue to hang in the good category. Expect good air quality to continue into tomorrow as cooler, drier air works in. *** Tuesday's Forecast: So for Tuesday, expect partly sunny skies to persist over the region as the cold front, which pushed into the region on Monday, continues to make its way off to our east. Higher pressure will build in (albeit briefly) during the day which should help to drive the cooler and drier conditions into the region. As a result, not only will high temperatures peak in the upper 60s but PM 2.5 levels will stay within the good threshold. *** Extended Outlook: Over the coming days, expect more seasonable temperatures to persist across the region as we see a storm system impact our weather early in the period. Here is how things are shaping up... During the middle of the week, we will begin to see increasing clouds over the region as an upper level low (associated with the cold front that moved through on Monday) drops south from the Great Lakes and across the Ohio Valley. This low will help to not only trigger cloud cover but will provide more of a threat of showers across the region during Thursday and Friday as the low slowly migrates east. This system is likely to keep the threat of rain around through the weekend as it begins to die over the northeastern US. This low will not only end up controlling temperatures to the 60s but will also keep PM 2.5 levels from rising out of the good category. --Nolan
