Forecast Discussion
Wednesday: Upper level ridging will build into the area, which will allow temperatures to get to the mid 50s. Surface high pressure will stretch along the eastern US coastline and down to the Gulf coast states and will create clear skies. Winds will be very light from the northeast. PM2.5 is expected to rise due to limited atmospheric mixing but remain in the GREEN range. ML
