Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon, high pressure is slowly building into the area from the north. With the drier air coming in, ozone and fine particulate are down into the upper good range. Dry conditions will prevail across the area until a strong cold front moves through Wednesday evening. For tonight, we will have a mainly clear sky with low temperatures falling into the lower 60s. *** Tuesday's forecast: High pressure over Pennsylvania Tuesday will bring a full day of sunshine with a warm afternoon. Afternoon temperatures in the middle 80s with both fine particulate and ozone rising into the moderate range. Clear to partly cloudy Tuesday night with lows in the lower 60s. *** Extended forecast: A cold front will approach the area late Wednesday into Wednesday evening, so a thunderstorm can pop up out ahead of it sometime Wednesday afternoon. Ozone levels will be restricted to the good range, but the humid conditions may keep PM2.5 in the moderate range another day. Cooler and drier air will move in behind the front later this week to kick off September. With a brisk north to northwesterly flow, air quality will return to the good range. Temperatures by the late week period may average a little below normal.---McAuliffe
