Forecast Discussion
Wednesday, October 29, 2014, 2:00 PM

PM 2.5 is approaching MODERATE for hourly readings this afternoon as a slow moving frontal boundary approaches the region with light SW winds ahead of it. Front will clear overnight with a chance of showers, and bring with it noticeably drier air for Thursday under NW winds. Air quality will be very GOOD. Air quality may approach upper GOOD later on the day Friday for PM 2.5, with more sun than clouds. A strong early season coastal storm looks to impact the area Sat and Sun with a threat of rain and even some snow mixed in. Steady winds and mixing will mean very GOOD air quality through the weekend.
