Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: A colder than normal weather pattern will continue across the region for the near future. At 1 p.m. EST this Thursday afternoon, low pressure over the Great Lakes was moving eastward towards us. Precipitation associated with this low will affect the area this afternoon into tonight with a fresh dusting to perhaps a couple of inches of new snow. A bit of sleet and ice may also mix in with the snow. With winds on the light side this afternoon into tonight, and precipitation not too heavy, PM values will remain well into the moderate range. Lows tonight in the middle 20s. *** Friday's forecast: Winds will rapidly increase behind an area of low pressure moving out to sea during the day Friday. PM concentrations will be knocked down into the good zone as very dry and cold air moves in from the northwest. Temperatures may not make it to 30 degrees, with wind chills in the teens. Winds will diminish later on Friday night. Bitterly cold with low temperatures in the single digits in a few locales. Fine particulate will increase some, but remain in the good range. *** Extended forecast: High pressure should move over the region on Saturday, but the day on the whole will continue to be brisk and quite cold with temperatures only rising into the middle to upper 20s. Enough mixing will still occur to keep air quality in the upper good range. High pressure then moves off to the east Saturday night and Sunday, resulting in light winds and deteriorating air quality into moderate territory. A developing storm then will bring some snow to the area later Sunday, Sunday night into early Monday. Air quality will improve to the good range by later on Monday as the storm pulls away and very cold air charges southward. Lighter winds Monday night into Tuesday with high pressure building in. We will have to watch for a developing temperature inversion with snow cover and very cold air in place during this period. Yet another storm may affect us for the mid week period, with another Arctic blast possible late next week behind it.---McAuliffe
