Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Monday: A cold front will move through the area Friday night and will bring rainfall with it. The front and rain will be out of the area by dawn on Saturday. Surface high pressure will quickly build into the area behind the front to clear the skies for the rest of the day on Saturday and Sunday as well. A weakening shortwave moving from the Plains to the Ohio River Valley and a warm front moving across the area on Monday will lead to an increase in clouds and a good chance for rainfall. Winds will be from the northwest at 10-20 mph on Saturday, from the southeast at 5-10 mph on Sunday and Monday. PM2.5 is expected to be in the GREEN range through Monday. ML
