Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: High pressure continues to build into the area this Friday afternoon with chilly west to northwest winds, but under a mostly sunny sky. The mixing in the lower levels has kept fine particulate down in the good range. Tonight, clouds will start to increase with winds turning into the south and southeast later. *** Saturday's forecast: An area of low pressure coming out of the Midwest will intensify as it comes eastward Saturday, and there will be a strong trailing cold front associated with it. Rain will overspread the area by Saturday afternoon, with perhaps a brief break in the evening before the cold frontal passage late Saturday night. A thunderstorm is also possible with some of the rain, especially near and close to the time of cold frontal passage. While fine particulate matter will increase some, it should remain at the top end of the good range. Temperatures will hit maximum levels Saturday night before dropping a bit Sunday morning. *** Sunday's forecast: Rather windy and chilly Sunday with temperatures holding in the upper 40s. A little sunshine will peek through the clouds in the afternoon, with the strong winds bringing good air quality. *** Monday's forecast: As high pressure builds into the Mid Atlantic states on Monday, the amount of sunshine we receive will increase. Brisk westerly winds will continue to keep PM2.5 levels in the good range, as highs will again reach the upper 40s. *** Extended forecast: Tuesday looks to be the mildest day of the week with sunshine for the most part and winds turning into the southwest. PM2.5 levels will rise some over Monday, and average in the upper good to lower moderate range. The next cold front passes Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, followed by an influx of chilly and dry air later Wednesday into Thanksgiving Day, along with good air quality.---McAuliffe
