Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: A west to southwesterly flow around high pressure centered across the southeastern part of the nation has resulted in temperatures returning to normal levels for January this Friday afternoon. Due to light mixing and a strong morning inversion, fine particulate levels will average in the moderate range this afternoon. Tonight will turn out mostly clear and seasonably cold with lows in the lower to middle 20s. *** Saturday's forecast: Sunshine and just a few clouds for the day Saturday with a mild afternoon as temperatures reach into the upper 40s. Light mixing with another morning inversion will produce moderate levels of PM2.5. *** Sunday's forecast: Clouds will begin to stream in Sunday well out ahead of low pressure developing across the Plains. Once again, light winds and little mixing will result in moderate air quality. Afternoon temperatures will reach the upper 40s. *** Monday's forecast: Rather cloudy to start the work week with a couple of rain showers. Steadier rain is likely Monday night as a cold front comes through Pennsylvania. *** Extended forecast: Turning breezy and still on the mild side Tuesday after some morning rain. Good air quality will return with gusty westerly winds by the afternoon. High pressure will build in for the middle of the week with near normal temperatures and continued good air quality.---McAuliffe
