Lehigh Valley Ozone/PM2.5 Forecast

Forecasted AQI for Ozone Air Quality Index Scale Forecasted AQI for PM2.5
July 24, 2014

 

Date: Thursday, July 24, 2014
Action Day?:  No
Temperature:  Near 80 Degrees
Discussion:
A cold front pushing eastward late on Wednesday will bring a cooler and drier air mass to the region early on Thursday. Breezy northwesterly flow will help to mix out the modified air mass and push out the moisture, forcing PM 2.5 concentrations back to the good range. A mix of sun and clouds, combined with the arrival of a cleaner air mass, will also limit ozone concentrations to the good range. Highs for the day will be slightly below normal with temperatures near 80 degrees.

Extended:
High pressure will make a brief appearance on Friday, resulting in mostly sunny skies. The air mass will still be relatively clean, keeping peak concentrations once again inside the good range. Cooler and dry conditions will continue with winds becoming lighter than that of Thursday. PM 2.5 concentrations are expected to remain in the middle to higher end of the good range. Increasing moisture will return as early as Saturday before unsettled weather returns Sunday/Monday. We may see a brief return to more hot and humid conditions along with moderate air quality before another cold front brings cooler, drier, and cleaner air to the region by the middle of next week. --- Roble
