Forecasted AQI for Ozone Air Quality Index Scale Forecasted AQI for PM2.5
February 13, 2016

 

Date: Saturday, February 13, 2016
Action Day?:  No
Temperature:  14-18 Saturday
Discussion:
Blustery and very cold for the day Saturday with temperatures remaining in the middle and upper teens. Wind chill values will be near zero, and strong winds will mean low values of PM. Any sunshine we do get will be ineffective, and a snow shower or two will also occur. Turning out mostly clear and cold Saturday night with low temperatures below zero in the colder valley areas where the wind does drop off. *** Sunday's forecast: High pressure will build into the area for Sunday, resulting in less wind and more sunshine. Even though temperatures will struggle to reach 20 degrees, it will feel less harsh. While fine particulate values rise some Sunday, they will remain in the upper good range. Partly cloudy and not as cold Sunday night with lows dropping into the lower to middle teens. *** Monday's forecast: Sunshine will be followed by clouds on Monday as a storm coming out of the southern Plains takes aim at the area. Light winds and limited mixing may bring moderate levels of fine particulate. Afternoon temperatures will reach close to 30 with snow possible later in the afternoon. Periods of snow Monday night may turn to sleet or freezing rain later on as warmer air comes in aloft. Temperatures will remain around 30 degrees. *** Tuesday's forecast: Tuesday, a storm is expected to track near to us or just to the west. Enough mild air may come in to where temperatures are high enough for just plain rain by the afternoon, but the morning at this point looks messy. High temperatures recovering to the upper 30s with precipitation washout bringing good air quality.

Extended:
A warming trend is foreseen for the latter part of next week as winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere turn more westerly. Brisk and seasonably cold Wednesday with a snow shower or two, and good air quality will occur. High pressure will move overhead and then to our east, turning the winds into a southwesterly direction later on next week. High temperatures by Friday may reach well into the 40s with the southwest winds and enough sunshine.---McAuliffe
