Susquehanna Valley Ozone/PM2.5 Forecast

Forecasted AQI for Ozone Air Quality Index Scale Forecasted AQI for PM2.5
August 22, 2014

 

Date: Friday, August 22, 2014
Action Day?:  No
Temperature:  lower to middle 80s Friday
Discussion:
Periods of clouds and sunshine for Friday. A backdoor cold front is expected to move in from the northeast later on in the day or during the evening. This will trigger shower and thunderstorm activity once more, with temperatures topping out in the lower to middle 80s. Ozone might get into the lower moderate range in spots, depending on how fast convection develops. Fine particulate will most likely be moderate as a light flow pattern continues.

Extended:
Rather cloudy to start the day on Saturday, then perhaps some breaks of sun are possible in the afternoon. An east to northeasterly wind will bring fine particulate and ozone concentrations down into the good range. A little cooler on Saturday with high temperatures only in the upper 70s. Good air quality should continue on Sunday with dry air and a good deal of sunshine. Air quality may then deteriorate into moderate territory early next week as a large area of high pressure remains stationary over the region, allowing for very light winds, a fair amount of sunshine, and temperatures trending back towards normal. Another cold front may then affect us later next week.---McAuliffe
