 Air Quality Forecast


issued 05/19/2022

Worsening air quality expected into the weekend. Sunnier conditions and summer-like warmth are on tap for Friday for central and southeast parts of the state. Clouds will linger longer in the morning over western and far northern areas. Modest winds will help to mix pollutants and mitigate substantial increases in ozone concentrations, though transport of higher fine particle concentrations will also take place, resulting in Moderate AQI for either ozone, fine particles, or both across the state. Winds calm into Saturday, with temperatures nearing 20 degrees above normal with high temperatures into the 90s. Local emissions will build upon some transported pollution into the region. Local meteorology, including Chesapeake Bay circulations, will likely created localized enhanced concentrations, making USG most probable along the northern Chesapeake Bay coastline, from Baltimore to Aberdeen. Upper Moderate AQI expected elsewhere. Continued warmth Sunday will be balanced by an increase in wind and continued lower weekend emissions acting to mitigate ongoing USG threat. Moderate AQI is anticipated. -MDE
