Current Conditions: Clouds are beginning to break up some this Friday afternoon as high pressure starts to build in from the west. Both fine particle pollution (PM2.5) and ozone are down inside the good range. *** Saturday’s forecast: An Air Quality Action Day is in effect for Saturday! Mostly sunny skies and temperatures edging to around 90 degrees will permit rapid ozone development with some additional transport involved from the west. Maximum 8-hour concentrations of ozone will thus reach into the code ORANGE range during the afternoon. PM2.5 averages will be in the moderate range.
