Forecast Discussion: Current Conditions as of 1 PM on Wednesday: High pressure slowly shifting eastward has provided another day of mostly sunny skies with a light southerly breeze. Temperatures and dew point temperatures are just a few degrees higher than this time yesterday, as was expected, though conditions remain fairly comfortable. Warmer and more humid conditions will arrive on Thursday, but will not remain for nearly as long of a period as we had recently. *** Thursday’s Forecast: A southerly breeze will continue on Thursday with increasing moisture levels pushing into the region. Dew point temperatures will noticeably jump to near 70 degrees by the afternoon. This jump is going to occur in advance of an approaching cold front. While there will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms, the threat looks to be more scattered than widespread. Increasing clouds in advance of the front will limit ozone formation to concentrations inside the good range. PM-2.5 concentrations will continue this week’s trend to slightly increase from the previous day, resulting in more low moderate readings on Thursday than we have seen so far this week. *** Extended Outlook: Chances for precipitation will continue early, but will be decreasing by late morning on Friday with the cold front pushing eastward. Winds will turn westerly behind the front, though humidity levels will be slow to decrease. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s with cloud cover decreasing, though ozone concentrations will again be limited to the good range. PM-2.5 concentrations will begin to fall with the wind shift, returning to the higher end of the good range. High pressure will build for Saturday with mostly good air quality and pleasant conditions continuing through the weekend. The next chance for precipitation will arrive early next week. --- Roble
