Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Monday: An upper level low will slowly move southward from the Midwest to the Ohio River Valley and to the SE US over the forecast period. The area will be in a NW flow aloft to begin the weekend and models hint that a MCS could develop and move through the area during the first half of Saturday that would bring rainfall. Some drier air moves into the area from the north to drop the chance for rainfall on Sunday. As the upper low makes its way into the SE US on Monday, it will increase moisture levels again. Therefore, scattered storms will be possible. Winds will be up to 10-15 mph over the weekend and from the south to west on Saturday and from the west to northwest on Sunday. Winds will be weaker on Monday from the north at 5-10 mph. The area will remain on the eastern edge of a plume of Saharan dust that might increase PM2.5 levels higher than forecast if it moves fully over the area. Both PM2.5 and Ozone are expected to be in the green range over the weekend. On Monday, PM2.5 is expected to be in yellow range and Ozone is expected to be in the green range. ML
