Synopsis: Some lingering PM on Monday flirted with MODERATE at times around Providence under high pressure. A low pressure over the Great Lakes will move in Tuesday with clouds/drizzle and easterly flow, with GOOD air quality expected east and coastal, highs in the mid 40s. Could see some periods of MODERATE particulate around Providence parts of the day Tuesday due to limited mixing. Chance of rain late Tues into Wednesday with highs again in the 40s. Low should move through by Thursday, with drying weather, sunshine, and good mixing under northwest winds, with makes for GOOD air quality.
