Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EST this Wednesday afternoon, light southwesterly winds are continuing to bring very mild air into the area, and temperatures are soaring into the middle and upper 60s. With light winds, there is limited mixing, and so fine particulate levels have been elevated to the moderate range. Mainly cloudy and rather mild tonight with a shower or two in the area. *** Thursday's forecast: Cloudy to partly sunny with unseasonable warmth for Thursday, but there also could be a shower or two around. Highs will reach the upper 60s, which would come close to the February 23 record for Pittsburgh of 70 set back in 1922. Light southwest winds will spell another day where air concentrations for fine particulate are in the moderate range. *** Extended forecast: Another record high is possible on Friday with temperatures moving into the lower 70s, with the daily record for Pittsburgh of 70 set in 1906. A stronger cold front will come through the area Saturday with showers and a thunderstorm accompanying it. Turning much cooler late Saturday into Sunday with rain showers changing to snow showers with temperatures returning to levels more appropriate for late February. Moderate levels of fine particulate continue on Friday, then a shift in the winds to the northwest will bring back lower levels of this pollutant Saturday into Sunday. An area of low pressure coming out of the Tennessee valley will bring mostly rain Monday night into Tuesday of next week.---McAuliffe
