Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon, mild conditions prevail across the area as temperatures are moving into the middle and even upper 60s. Mixing is limited enough to where fine particulate levels are in the moderate range across parts of the area. Rather cloudy and mild tonight with a couple of showers. Low temperatures will not drop below the lower 50s, and fine particulate will remain at moderate levels. *** Tuesday's forecast: A cold front will pass through the area Tuesday, and a couple more showers will accompany it. Temperatures will reach into the lower 60s. Fine particulate will start out the day moderate, then concentrations will drop during the afternoon. Still, some locations may wind up in the lower moderate range on average. Turning out partly cloudy, brisk, and colder Tuesday night with low temperatures in the upper 30s. *** Extended forecast: Dry air will move into the area Wednesday as high pressure builds over us, with temperatures moving back to near normal levels for late March. Good air quality should prevail with low relative humidity. Clouds will increase Thursday with rain showers possible late in the day in response to an area of low pressure coming out of the Midwest. Light south winds will keep fine particulate at moderate levels. Periods of rain are likely Thursday night into Friday with the heavier rain washing out PM to the good range. Mostly cloudy on Saturday with a lingering shower or two, and there should be enough low level mixing to promote low levels of fine particulate.---McAuliffe
