Forecast Discussion: FORECAST SUMMARY: Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 through Monday, July 23rd, 2018 Ozone: 8-hour Ozone concentrations will be generally Good to Low Moderate throughout the state. PM-2.5: 24-hour Fine Particulate concentrations will also be generally Good to Low Moderate. FORECAST DISCUSSION Air Quality during Wednesday is very Good as Michigan remains under high pressure with temperatures in the 70’s and dew point in the 50’s. Low pressure begins to approach from the northwest during Thursday. That will turn our winds to the southeast, which will bump the afternoon temperatures into the mid-80’s and dew points into the mid-60’s under mostly sunny skies. Air Quality will remain generally Good although areas west to northwest of Detroit may see a creep into the Low Moderate range. Friday and Saturday will show the effects of the low pressure system as it migrates southeastward. Daily high temperatures will hover around the 80 degree mark with dew points increasing into the low 70’s. The atmosphere will be unstable and decent rain showers are likely throughout the area. Precipitable water can be as much as 1.5 inches in places where the clouds let loose. With the rain and clouds, ozone will not be an issue but fine particulates could climb into the Low Moderate range. Sunday should the beginnings of a clean out day. Winds will be generally northeasterly but afternoon temperatures should remain around 80 degrees and the dew point continues to hang in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. The cloud cover should begin to break up during the course of the day. Monday is a better clean out day with northerly winds. The models show the temperature and dew points will not change much but sunny skies should prevail and Air Quality should be generally Good. EXTENDED FORECAST: Air Quality is expected to be Good to Low Moderate during the next work week.
