Forecast Discussion: At 2 p.m. EDT this Thursday afternoon, some sunshine out ahead of a wave of low pressure coming out of the Ohio valley is bringing elevated ozone levels to the area, but will stop just short of code ORANGE with clouds coming in. Showers and thunderstorms will continue tonight. With morning clouds and rain, and only a little sun in the afternoon, ozone levels will remain in the upper good range Friday. Mostly cloudy on Saturday with another round of showers and thunderstorms coming in; the clouds will limit any ozone formation.---McAuliffe
