Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Friday afternoon, a warm front has passed through the area with milder air moving in. Lighter winds and higher low level moisture have acted to bring fine particulate into the moderate range. The overall pattern over the next few days will be a milder one, but also one which is unsettled. Tonight will be mostly cloudy and mild with temperatures not falling below the middle 40s. *** Saturday's forecast: Clouds for the most part for the day Saturday, but perhaps some sun as well. A shower will also occur, mainly in the afternoon. High temperatures can reach close to 70 degrees late in the day. A light southwesterly flow will promote moderate concentrations of particles. *** Sunday's forecast: Turning a little cooler on Sunday as a frontal boundary sags southward through the area. Periods of rain and drizzle will also occur, mainly in the afternoon and at night. Stronger onshore flow might be enough to bring fine particulate down into the good range overall. *** Monday's forecast: Mostly cloudy and mild for Monday, with rain to start, then this rain should taper to drizzle by the afternoon, and with low mixing, PM will increase to moderate once more. *** Extended forecast: The next cold front will move through later Tuesday or Tuesday evening, and bring some rain along with it. Winds will continue to be too light to permit fine particulate to drop under the moderate range. Drier weather should finally take hold by the middle of next week with a return to near normal temperatures and good air quality.---McAuliffe
