Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: Plenty of sunshine and light winds this Wednesday afternoon have brought ozone concentrations well into the moderate range. Since the air remains dry, fine particulate is still in the good range. Tonight will be mild with a mainly clear sky as temperatures only fall into the upper 60s. *** Thursday's forecast: Another mostly sunny day with a hot afternoon is in store for Thursday, and ozone production will ramp up again, well into the moderate range. Humidity will remain low enough to where fine particulate remains in the upper good range. *** Extended forecast: The first heat wave of the summer will continue on Friday, and with any thunder delayed until the evening, ozone could go to the lower code ORANGE range. We will continue to monitor this situation. Even fine particulate goes slightly moderate by Friday as well. Partly sunny skies with a little lower humidity for Saturday with a chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Air quality for ozone and fine particulate will remain moderate. Increasingly breezy behind a cool front for the day Sunday, but remaining on the warm side with lower levels of ozone and PM2.5.---McAuliffe
