AIR QUALITY FORECAST
SYNOPSIS: A strong nocturnal inversion under clear skies and light winds resulted in poor air quality for the early part of the day Friday. Providence even saw a one hour reading with the index approaching unhealthy for sensitive groups. Winds eventually picked up from the east northeast with better mixing and particulate levels have dropped significantly where they should remain through the remainder of the day. Low pressure moving off the Mid Atlantic will remain on a track to our south Saturday and place our region in northwest flow and good air quality. Temperatures close to 40. Northwest increases slightly for Sunday with slightly cooler temps and more good air quality. Lots of sun both Saturday and Sunday. Monday could see particulate levels approach moderate (but remain in good on the AQI) under west southwest flow ahead of a weak area of low pressure. No precipitation is expected.
