Forecast Discussion
Saturday-Monday: A ridge over the central Plains will flatten out as several disturbance move across the northern U.S. Some of these small disturbances along with plenty of moisture and heat will allow for scattered storms each afternoon. Highs will be in the low to mid 90's with light winds out of the SW to SE around 5 mph. This will keep both ozone and PM2.5 in the GREEN range through Monday. SS
