Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: At 2 p.m. EDT this Monday afternoon, high pressure was bringing sunshine for the most part with rather warm conditions across the area. Ozone concentrations will go into the moderate range in many locations, with fine particulate moderate as well. We will have one more day of moderate air quality conditions, and then a much cleaner and cooler air mass will settle in for the mid and late week period. A thunderstorm in parts of the area this evening, then partly cloudy and muggy overnight with fog forming. Low temperatures only dropping into the lower 70s. *** Tuesday's forecast: Hot and humid for the day Tuesday, and thunderstorms will develop out ahead of an approaching cold front late Tuesday afternoon and early Tuesday night. Some of these storms may also be on the strong side. Enough sunshine will prevail to where ozone will still go into the moderate range, and fine particulate will also remain low moderate as well. Afternoon temperatures will reach the lower 90s. *** Extended forecast: A large area of high pressure coming out of central Canada will bring much cooler and less humid conditions Wednesday into Thursday. Plenty of mixing from a brisk northwesterly flow will send fine particulate and ozone down into the good range in spite of plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will also average a few degrees below late August levels into the upcoming weekend with high temperatures remaining in the upper 70s.---McAuliffe
