Forecast Discussion: 7/16 - Mostly sunny skies, increasing temperatures, and southwest winds will allow ozone levels to reach the upper moderate category in New Jersey on Monday. Given these conditions, there is a possibility scattered northern locations may reach the USG level. Meanwhile, fine particulates are forecast to reach moderate levels along the I-95 corridor and points north. 7/17 - Ozone levels are expected to lower to the upper good range on Tuesday with increasing clouds and scattered afternoon/evening showers associated with an approaching cold front. Fine particulates are expected to remain in the moderate category as humidity is forecast to remain high.
