Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon, a broad based trough of low pressure is moving into the northeastern U.S. and will continue to bring a cooler northwesterly flow of below normal temperatures into the mid week period. Tonight will turn out partly to mostly cloudy with a stray shower early. Lows will drop into the upper 50s. *** Tuesday's forecast: Breezy and cool with sunshine with some cloudiness. Dry and clean background air will keep concentrations of fine particulate and ozone low. Afternoon temperatures no better than the middle 70s. *** Extended forecast: High pressure will move overhead during the middle of the week, then migrate off of the east coast later on, shifting winds into the southwest, and increasing temperatures and humidity as it does so. Ozone levels may reach low moderate as early as Wednesday, then moderate ozone and fine particulate levels are likely later on in the week. An increase in afternoon and evening convection Friday into Saturday may keep rising ozone concentrations in check some, but still within the moderate range.---McAuliffe
