Forecast Discussion: Wednesday: Upper level ridging will remain on top of the area. There will still be quite a bit of atmospheric moisture in place so can't count out the possibility for a few scattered diurnal showers/storms. High temperatures will get up to the lower 90s. Winds around 5 mph will be from the southeast. PM2.5 and Ozone are both expected to be in the YELLOW (moderate) range. ML
