Everyone may begin to experience health effects members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.

Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Wednesday afternoon, a strong area of high pressure of Canadian origin is building southeastward into the area. Unseasonably cold and very dry air has resulted in low values of PM2.5. Rather cold overnight under a mostly clear sky as temperatures bottom out in the middle teens in the colder spots. *** Thursday's forecast: High pressure overhead early Thursday will shift off to our east in the afternoon. With some sunshine and lighter winds, temperatures will recover close to 50 degrees in the afternoon. The presence of rather dry air will inhibit any increases in fine particulate, so concentrations will remain in the good range. Overcast and not so cold Thursday night with low temperatures dropping only to the upper 30s. *** Extended forecast: A warm front will move through the region early Friday, and winds turning into the southwest will send warmer air in as the mercury goes into the lower to middle 60s. Southwest winds and warmer air will bring fine particulate up into the moderate range. Periods of clouds and sunshine and warm for the day Saturday with fine particulate attaining moderate status once more. The mercury may top the 70 degree mark in the afternoon. Low pressure coming out of the Midwest will bring a round of rain to the area Sunday afternoon and Sunday night, with moderate fine particulate readings still existing. Unsettled weather continues into early next week as another area of low pressure comes out of the Midwest with another bout of rain and a thunderstorm, but continued moderate air quality.---McAuliffe
