Forecast Discussion:

Particulate levels are increasing pretty quick. PM2.5 reached 75 AQI yesterday while PM10 managed to peak into the low Moderate range. With elevated particulate levels this morning and again this evening, concentrations will likely be higher today. Then, even higher concentrations are forecast tomorrow, especially during the evening due to more wood burning. With high concentrations today and tomorrow, we are issuing a PM2.5 Health Watch for today (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday). Fortunately, a weak trough will be moving through over the weekend which should bring particulate levels down a little bit. Overall, both PM10 and PM2.5 are forecast to be in the Moderate AQI category through the forecast period, with PM2.5 flirting with the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category today and tomorrow.
