Forecast Discussion
Sunday, May 29, 2016, 10:00 AM

Synopsis: For Sunday, air quality expected to reach MODERATE for ozone and fine particles statewide, as warm and generally sunny conditions remain for favorable ozone formation. Things change drastically on Memorial Day, as a plume of tropical moisture will get pulled up with an approaching front and result in wet weather and possible periods of very heavy rain. Temps in the 70s with GOOD air quality. Tuesday produces another weather change, back to the warm sunny weather and temps up to the 80s. Ozone and fine particles expected to reach MODERATE statewide.
