Forecast Discussion: Temperatures will come close to 90 Thursday increasing the potential for ozone production, particularly north of Baltimore. However, slightly stronger winds and passing clouds in the afternoon will keep ozone in check with Moderate air quality anticipated east of the mountains. On Friday, winds become west and northwesterly and temperatures will climb above 90F. Fairly persistent winds will likely keep ozone in check but many areas will see upper Moderate ozone air quality due to ample sun and warm temperatures. A front will stall in the area on Saturday, causing general recirculation of the airmass with rain not expected. Thought with lower weekend emissions, ozone is expected to remain in the Moderate AQI range. -MDE
