Forecast Discussion: *** Saturday’s Forecast: Mild and mostly dry conditions, though skies will be mostly cloudy to block out sunshine, will prevail on Saturday. This will be the driest day of the forecast period as unsettled weather will return later in the weekend. Light winds resulting in minimal mixing will allow for PM-2.5 concentrations to remain at moderate levels. Temperatures, despite a lack of sunshine, will approach the upper 40s to low 50s for the day. *** Sunday’s Forecast: Similar conditions as Saturday will continue through at least the first half of the day on Sunday. Mostly cloudy skies with temperatures again above normal and into the 40s will then approach the low 50s as unsettled weather moves in later in the day. Light winds early in the day will again limit mixing, allowing for moderate levels of PM-2.5 to continue. Precipitation chances will be increasing through the afternoon with the onset of rain showers arriving Sunday evening. *** Monday’s Forecast: While Saturday will be the driest, Monday will be a wet start to the new work week. Rain showers, potentially heavy at times, and increasing winds will at least help to improve air quality conditions. Temperatures will start off likely in the 40s before falling into the 30s as cooler air fills in on the backside of the strengthening low pressure system. Most locations are expected to see rainfall with a chance that the precipitation ends as a wintry mix, but if temperatures cool just enough there could be locations that will see some snowfall. *** Extended Outlook: Precipitation will end early on Tuesday with some clearing later in the day. Good air quality will continue with breezy northwesterly flow on Tuesday. Temperatures will again climb into the 40s, but may be limited to the upper 30s anywhere that sees some snowfall accumulation. Our best chance for a day of sunshine will come on Wednesday with temperatures again reaching the 40s. PM-2.5 concentrations will also return to moderate levels with a decrease in mixing as winds become light again. Colder temperatures may arrive late in the week to bring conditions back to near normal for late January and end this streak of mild weather. --- Roble
