Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Monday: Upper level ridging will be in place over the weekend to create abnormally hot and dry conditions. Skies will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the low-to-mid 90s. A shortwave trough will move from the northern Plains to the upper Great Lakes on Monday. This will lower thickness levels which will drop highs into the upper 80s. A surface low associated with the shortwave trough will push a cold front near the area, which will lead to an increase in clouds with a low chance for rainfall during the second half of the day. Winds at 5-10 mph will be from the north to northeast on Saturday, east to northeast on Sunday, and southeast on Monday. Air quality is expected to be in the YELLOW range each day of the forecast period for both PM2.5 and Ozone. ML
