Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: As of 2 p.m. EDT this Tuesday afternoon, low pressure was moving just to the north of the partnership area with light rain resulting. The temperature gradient was pronounced across central Pennsylvania with middle 30s to the north of the area, where snow is falling, to the 50s across the south. Fine particulate levels remained in the good range. Good air quality is expected to continue into the day Wednesday with an area of high pressure bringing in drier air from the north. Tonight, light rain will mix with a little snow prior to ending later this evening from west to east, and with an increase in the wind from the north, PM2.5 concentrations will stay low. Temperatures later on tonight will fall to near 30 degrees. *** Wednesday's forecast: April will begin on a dry note, but with temperatures still below average. With sunshine and some clouds, high temperatures will reach just past the 50 degree mark. Dry air and moderate mixing will keep fine particulate concentrations on the low side. Mostly moonlit Wednesday night. PM2.5 levels will increase as winds will be light and shift into more of a southerly direction. Lows in the lower to middle 30s. *** Extended forecast: Southwesterly winds will bring in warmer air with increased moisture for Thursday and Friday. PM levels will increase into the moderate range on Thursday into early Friday. Rain expected later Friday into Friday night will lower concentrations once more. Highs will reach into the middle 60s by Thursday afternoon, with 70 possible on Friday if the rain holds off and there is some sunshine. A cold front will then pass through Friday night with periods of rain and a thunderstorm. Very good air quality will follow for Saturday with brisk northwesterly winds and chillier air advecting back in. Highs Saturday may remain in the upper 40s. High pressure should then bring tranquil weather for Easter Sunday into Monday with highs in the middle 50s Sunday and near 60 Monday. Fine particulate will increase from the good range Sunday to more moderate Monday with light west to southwest winds. A stationary frontal boundary will then bring the chance for unsettled weather towards the middle of next week with air quality varying between good and moderate, depending on which side of the boundary we are on and how heavy any rainfall is. --McAuliffe
