Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Monday: A shortwave will move eastward across northern Mexico over the weekend then move northeast across Texas to the southern Mississippi River Valley on Monday. Rainfall will occur over the weekend as moisture gets pulled northward over a frontal boundary along the Gulf coast and waves of energy move across the area. A surface low will develop over the western Gulf over the weekend and move to Mississippi on Monday and this will pull more moisture into the area and bring more beneficial rainfall. The large amount of rainfall will put PM2.5 concentrations firmly in the GREEN range the entire forecast period. ML
