Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Monday: Surface ridging will keep the area dry over the weekend with mostly sunny skies. The passage of a cold front on Friday will usher in drier air and lower humidity levels. An upper ridge will build into the area on Monday and moisture will begin to move back into the area. The solar eclipse on Monday will disrupt the production of ozone so concentrations are expected to decrease. High temperatures will reach the low to mid 90s each day. PM2.5 is expected to be in the yellow range through Monday. Ozone is expected to be in the yellow range over the weekend and in the green range on Monday. ML
