Air Quality Action Day has been declared for Susquehanna Valley, PA, on Wednesday, Dec 4

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has declared an air quality action day for Dec. 4.

Tomorrow’s Forecast
Wednesday, Dec 4: 110 AQI Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Particle Pollution (2.5 microns)

Current Conditions as of 1 PM on Tuesday: Hazy conditions continue this afternoon as calm winds are keeping mixng to a minimum, allowing for PM 2.5 levels to remain in the Code Orange range. Similar conditions will continue tomorrow before we begin to see a more active pattern return late week. *** Wednesday’s Forecast: Light winds will limit vertical mixing, yet again, through at least the morning and into the afternoon on Wednesday. Increasing moisture will continue to slowly push northward, bringing some milder temperatures with it. The combination of minimal mixing and rising moisture will allow for PM 2.5 levels to remain inside the Code Orange range through at least the middle of the day. The air mass to our south that contains the higher moisture levels is slightly cleaner than the current air mass in place. Therefore, as this air mass begins to push further north we should see concentrations begin to fall and reach the lower end of the Code Orange range if not high moderate by late in the day. A southerly breeze at the surface will form late afternoon to early evening to assist in pushing this mild and humid air mass northward. As a result, there will be enough hours of Code Orange concentrations throughout the day before we see improvement back to more moderate levels by late evening. 

The Clean Air Board suggest going to this link to check particle levels in the Cumberland Valley.

Air Quality Action Day has been declared for Susquehanna Valley, PA, on Tuesday, Dec 3

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has declared an Air Quality Action Day for the Susquehanna Valley on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013

Tomorrow’s Forecast
Tuesday, Dec 3: 105 AQI Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups Particle Pollution (2.5 microns)

Extended Forecast
Wednesday, Dec 4: 87 AQI Moderate Particle Pollution (2.5 microns)
Current Conditions: At 2 p.m. EST this Monday afternoon, very light winds, high humidity levels, and warmer air aloft are promoting high levels of fine particulate. In fact, PM2.5 levels are in the code ORANGE range. With continued very light winds near the surface, elevated humidity, and warmer air aloft, poor air quality conditions are likely to continue into the day Tuesday. Rather cloudy and hazy tonight with areas of fog. Low temperatures in the lower to middle 30s. *** Tuesday’s forecast: Winds will continue very light and variable Tuesday, as we will be between an area of low pressure in the western Atlantic and another low out in the Plains. Weak mixing along with a temperature inversion will continue to keep fine particulate levels in the code ORANGE range. With clouds and limited sunshine, afternoon temperatures will not move much beyond the middle to upper 40s. High levels of PM2.5 will also continue Tuesday night with near calm winds.For more info: http://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&cityid=165
