Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: Winds are near calm this Monday afternoon as there is very little pressure gradient across western Pennsylvania. These weak winds will continue into the day Tuesday, so expect PM concentrations to increase. *** Tuesday's forecast: Calm morning winds with a weak inversion along with little afternoon mixing will send fine particulate concentrations well into the moderate range. The day will bring morning drizzle, otherwise mostly cloudy during the afternoon. *** Extended forecast: High pressure building in Wednesday may not clean things out completely, so moderate PM2.5 concentrations are again a possibility. High pressure moves off to the east on Thursday, and winds will increase from the southwest. The next cold front comes through by Friday with rain possible Thursday night into Friday. Good air quality is likely as the cold front approaches later this week.---McAuliffe
