Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions: As of 2 PM on Friday, a mix of sun and clouds persist across the region as an area of high pressure, centered over the western Atlantic, dominates our weather. At the same time, a new storm system continues to develop across the central Plains / Midwest. Right now, light easterly flow is helping to confine temperatures to near 70. These seasonable temperatures along with low moisture levels over the region are enough to keep PM 2.5 levels within the good range. As the winds turn southerly over the weekend, expect warmer temperatures to move in. These winds will also increase the humidity, thus increasing the threat of showers/thunderstorms each day. Overall, air quality should remain in the good range. Here are the day-to-day details... *** On Saturday, expect mostly cloudy conditions to prevail over the region as the area of high pressure, which dominated our weather on Friday, remains stationed off to our east. At the same time, the storm system, which was off to our west on Friday, moves east and closer to our area. The storm's eastward movement will help steer our flow out of the south, resulting in warmer, more humid conditions across our area. In addition, we should see the threat of showers and thunderstorm increase. As a result, the additional cloud cover with the influx of the moist, more tropical conditions should help keep PM 2.5 levels near the good / moderate threshold. --Nolan
