Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: Much colder air has settled into the region this Thursday afternoon on north to northeast winds. Temperatures are just over 30 degrees colder than Wednesday's high temperatures as a stationary front remains draped to the south of us. Ample mixing and earlier heavier rainfall have brought good air quality today. Overcast and chilly tonight with just a bit of rain and drizzle as temperatures remain steady. *** Friday's forecast: The stationary boundary currently to our south will come northward as a warm front on Friday, bringing another round of rain, but with a milder afternoon. Temperatures will climb well into the 50s, possibly close to 60 during the afternoon, and once again rainfall and a shift in the winds to the southwest will mean good air quality. *** Extended forecast: A frontal boundary will remain close to the area over the weekend, occasionally bringing bouts of rain, and some of this will be heavy, hence the continued flood advisories. A cold front crosses the area early Sunday, and with it's passage, things will finally dry out for later Sunday and the dryness should last into the early part of next week as a large area of high pressure builds in. Air quality should be good most of the extended period, but might turn moderate at some point early next week with lighter winds and stronger morning inversions.---McAuliffe
