Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Friday afternoon, high pressure was producing another pleasant afternoon across the area with plenty of sunshine. All locations have air quality which is still in the good range. Over the next couple of days, the air quality will slowly deteriorate due to high pressure moving off just to our east, with very warm and increasingly humid air advecting in on light southwest winds. Tonight will be mainly moonlit with low temperatures close to 60 degrees. Fine particulate will rise into the moderate range later on tonight. *** Saturday's forecast: With sunshine for the most part Saturday along with temperatures rising into the middle 80s in the afternoon, ozone levels will climb, and most of the area will see readings peak just above the moderate range. Low moderate readings are also likely for fine particulate with the increase in humidity. Mostly moonlit again Saturday night with lows in the middle 60s. *** Sunday's forecast: Sunshine and a few clouds on Sunday, and with light southwest winds and humid conditions, fine particulate will remain moderate. Ozone will also peak into the moderate range with the addition of sunshine and heat. *** Monday's forecast: Monday will start out with clouds, then hot and humid in the afternoon with times of clouds and sunshine. Any chance for afternoon thunderstorms will be minimal. Highs will reach close to 90 degrees. Ozone and fine particulate will go well into the moderate range. *** Extended forecast: September will start out on the hot and humid side, with times of clouds and sunshine during the middle of the week. Moderate levels of fine particulate and ozone are expected, but readings might even go higher for these pollutants depending on local emissions, as well as the strength of the high pressure off the east coast. We will continue to monitor the forecast in regards to the air quality for next week, but at this point, expect deteriorating air quality with temperatures well above normal to start September.---McAuliffe
