Forecast Discussion: Tuesday: The disturbance on the SE US coastline will move up the east coast and further away from the area. In turn, clouds will finally exit the area and skies will be mostly clear. Upper level ridging will build into the area and will lead to an increase in high temperatures to the low 80s. Westerly winds at 5-10 mph will switch to the south later in the day. Pollution levels are expected to increase with PM2.5 in the upper GREEN range and Ozone in the YELLOW range. ML
