Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: At 2 p.m. EST this Wednesday afternoon, a pressure gradient between a departing area of low pressure over eastern Canada and high pressure over the southern Plains was creating a brisk northwesterly flow across our area. Strong mixing of a vertical and horizontal nature was bringing PM2.5 concentrations down into the good range. Colder than normal temperature readings are expected to continue over the next several days, with an exceptionally strong push of Arctic air for the upcoming weekend. Tonight will be brisk and cold with a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Low temperatures will dip into the upper teens. *** Thursday's forecast: For the day Thursday, there will be periods of clouds and sunshine with high pressure building in from the southwest. Northwest winds will continue to be gusty, which will maintain low PM2.5 concentrations. Temperatures will only rise to the upper 20s in spite of the sunshine. Clear to partly cloudy and rather cold Thursday night with lows close to 10 degrees above zero in the colder spots. *** Extended forecast: Periods of clouds and sunshine on Friday with highs bouncing back close to 30 degrees. While winds will be lighter and fine particulate will increase, levels will remain in the upper good range. A major blast of Arctic air will follow a cold frontal passage Friday night or early Saturday morning. The mercury will struggle to reach the middle and upper teens on Saturday, with any sunshine being ineffective. PM2.5 levels will be rather low with the Arctic intrusion. Remaining on the cold side but less harsh on Sunday with sunshine for the most part. The cold will continue to moderate as we move into early next week. We continue to watch the evolution of a storm which may affect us later Monday into Tuesday. There is a disagreement as to the track the storm will take, which at this point makes it difficult to pin down details as to precipitation type and where maximum amounts might occur.---McAuliffe
