Susquehanna Valley Ozone/PM2.5 Forecast

Forecasted AQI for Ozone Air Quality Index Scale Forecasted AQI for PM2.5
May 30, 2015

 

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Action Day?:  No
Temperature:  Low 80s
Discussion:
On Saturday, mostly cloudy skies will prevail over the region as a frontal system begins its approach from the west. This frontal system will end up driving rain into our area late in the day. The southerly flow in advance of the front will allow temperatures to approach the low 80s. However, it will be the cloud cover and afternoon rain that will limit ozone formation to the good threshold. PM 2.5 will remain elevated in the moderate range, thanks to the warm and humid conditions over the area.

Extended:
As we take a peek into next week, we notice that the week will start off on the cool and wet side as a cold front continues its slow progression through the region. The front should clear the region by Tuesday, allowing for clearer skies and warmer temperatures to return by mid week. By the end of the week, afternoon temperatures will extend back into the 80s as higher pressure takes control over our weather again. Late in the week, the southwesterly flow will not only lead to warmer times but also more humid times, which, in turn, could trigger afternoon shower development. Overall, air quality levels during the period are likely to continue to follow the trend of temperatures. Early on, as the cold front pushes through, air quality levels will stay in the good range. As the warmth and humidity return by mid week, expect air quality levels to rise back into the moderate category. This new air mass will remain in place until the next frontal system pushes through over the weekend. --Nolan
