Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Monday: Arctic high pressure will be on top of the area to start the weekend. This means Saturday will be cold and dry with high temperatures only reaching the upper 40s and clear skies. Winds will be from the northeast around 5 mph. The high will shift east of the area on Sunday. Winds will shift and come from the southeast at 5-10 mph and push high temperatures to the upper 50s. On Monday, a surface low will move across the Great Lakes Region and will push a cold front through the area. This will create an increase in clouds later in the day on Sunday and a chance for rainfall late Sunday night through Monday. Skies will be overcast for much of Monday with high temperatures increasing to the mid 60s. These weather conditions are expected to put PM2.5 concentrations in the GREEN range the entire forecast period. ML
