Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: High pressure has moved off the east coast this Tuesday afternoon, with southwesterly winds ushering milder air into the region. A cold front will move through tonight, with rain and possibly snow showers later on as colder air moves back in. *** Wednesday's forecast: Brisk and colder for Wednesday with a couple of rain and snow showers. A fresh coating will fall in the mountains to the east. Afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s with good air quality. Partly cloudy and cold Wednesday night with lows in the lower to middle 20s. *** Extended forecast: More clouds than sunshine on Thanksgiving Day, but with no precipitation. While fine particulate levels will rise some, concentrations will remain in the good range. Winds will shift into the southwest once again Friday with high pressure moving off to the east. Milder with highs close to 50 degrees, and less mixing means fine particulate goes moderate in parts of the area. The next cold front comes through sometime Saturday, with a couple of rain showers possible. Turning colder Sunday with a couple of snow showers possible, then high pressure builds back in for the early part of next week.---McAuliffe
