Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Monday: A surface low over northern FL will move into the Atlantic on Saturday with rain ending by Friday night across the area. Mid level ridging moves into the area over the weekend, which will allow temperatures to moderate into the 70s. Skies will be partly cloudy all weekend long. A trough will approach the area from the west on Monday, which will lead to an increase in clouds and a chance for rain later in the day. Winds will be from the north to northeast at 10-15 mph on Saturday, from the east to northeast at 5-10 mph on Sunday, and from the south at 5-10 mph on Monday. PM2.5 is expected to be in the GREEN range on Saturday and rise into the lower YELLOW range on Sunday and Monday. Ozone is expected to be in the GREEN range Saturday through Monday. ML
