Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: Humidity levels are on the increase across the area at 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon. A ridge of high pressure building over us will cause the heat to build over the next couple of days, and with this, fine particulate and ozone concentrations will increase. In fact, we are keeping an eye on upwind locations to see how much ozone transport there will be over the next few days. At present, it appears as though ozone generation will be maxing out by Wednesday, when concentrations will be well into the moderate range. Tonight will be partly cloudy and humid with lows in the lower to middle 60s. *** Tuesday's forecast: High pressure building into the area on Tuesday will allow for a good deal of sunshine, and with upper levels also warming, the chances for convection will be surpressed. Ozone will thus move into the moderate range. Afternoon temperatures will move into the upper 80s. Warm and sticky Tuesday night with lows in the middle 60s. *** Extended forecast: Wednesday will bring sunshine with plenty of heat and humidity. Fine particulate will remain in the moderate levels due to higher humidity and low wind speeds. Ozone production will be at it's maximum, with code ORANGE levels possible in the afternoon. Afternoon temperatures close to 90 degrees. A cool front will then move in late Thursday and Thursday night. Convection out ahead of this front will reduce ozone production to the point where levels may only make the lower moderate range. A return to good overall air quality will then occur Friday into Saturday with a good deal of sunshine and drier air in the boundary layer.---McAuliffe
