Forecast Discussion: Saturday should be a uneventful weather day, with mostly cloudy skies early, some peaks of sun late. Highs in the 50s. Light winds and weak high pressure should allow fine particles to approach MODERATE. For Sunday expect mostly cloudy skies and light winds early, with increasing northeast winds and rain developing at night. Fine particles will start out MODERATE, but Atlantic air will wash in late with GOOD air quality. Monday we will see the impact of a strong storm delivering substantial northeast winds and rain. Air quality will be excellent.
