Discussion:
With sunshine for the most part Saturday along with temperatures rising into the middle 80s in the afternoon, ozone levels will climb, and most of the area will see readings peak just above the moderate range. Low moderate readings are likely in most areas for fine particulate. Mostly moonlit again Saturday night with lows in the lower 60s. *** Sunday's forecast: Sunshine and a few clouds on Sunday, and with light southwest winds and humid conditions, fine particulate will remain moderate. Ozone will also peak into the moderate range with the addition of sunshine and heat. *** Monday's forecast: Monday will start out with clouds, then hot and humid in the afternoon with times of clouds and sunshine. Any chance for afternoon thunderstorms will be minimal. Highs will reach close to 90 degrees. Ozone and fine particulate will go well into the moderate range.

Extended:
September will start out on the hot and humid side, with times of clouds and sunshine during the middle of the week. Moderate levels of fine particulate and ozone are expected, but readings might even go higher for these pollutants depending on local emissions, as well as the strength of the high pressure off the east coast. We will continue to monitor the forecast in regards to the air quality for next week, but at this point, expect deteriorating air quality with temperatures well above normal to start September.---McAuliffe
