Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 3:00 PM

Synopsis: A clear, dry, and cold night will lead to chilly temperatures for the morning commute Thursday. High pressure shifts eastward on Thursday with light winds, temperatures to near 30. Will see limited mixing and increasing clouds, which will allow development of fine particles and MODERATE air quality. Chance of snow overnight and into early Friday. Could see periods of MODERATE fine particles for the first part of Friday before a brisk NW wind cleans things out and ushers in a very cold airmass late day. Temperatures Saturday not expected to make 20F under sunny skies with GOOD air quality.
