Forecast Discussion: High pressure is in full control through the weekend promoting weakening winds and mainly sunny skies. On Saturday, northerly winds persist east of the mountains while winds slacken elsewhere. Good air quality will continue with the clean and dry airmass in place. With generally lower emissions on Sunday and some cloud cover expected, Good air quality should persist for most of the state. The exception may be the Hagerstown area, where local emissions may keep particle pollution just above the Moderate threshold. With the new work week and for some a new school year on Monday, higher local emissions may be just enough to push the I-95 corridor into the Moderate ozone range, but otherwise generally good air quality will persist. - MDE
