Forecast Discussion: Current conditions: High pressure centered over the Mid-Atlantic region this Wednesday afternoon is bringing a sun filled sky to the area with temperatures recovering close to 70. The lighter wind flow has also acted to bring fine particulate into the lower moderate range in parts of the area. The recent stretch of nice weather will continue over the next couple of days, so enjoy it while it lasts. Tonight will bring a mostly clear sky with low temperatures in the lower to middle 40s, and fine particulate may remain low moderate as well as winds go calm. *** Thursday's forecast: West to southwest winds will mean a little more mixing for the day Thursday, but some locations may still reach the lower moderate range in terms of fine particulate. High temperatures will top out in the lower 70s. *** Extended forecast: High pressure will continue to control the weather across the area into the upcoming weekend, with clear, cool nights, and mostly sunny days with pleasant afternoons. A moderate northwesterly wind will bring PM2.5 levels down to the good range Friday, then as the flow goes more southwesterly over the weekend, moderate air quality is again possible. The next cold front will not come through until Tuesday of next week, followed by another cool down during the midweek period.---McAuliffe
