Discussion:
Ridging will continue for the most part Tue and Wed. A disturbance will pass to the north and east and allow an initial cold frontal passage on Wed. Ventilation overall will be lowering during this period because of the lower mixing heights. Transport wind flow will turn more NW-N-NE and will be locally stronger in areas, especially Wed.

Extended Outlook: Thursday - Saturday
High pressure ridge will strengthen over the area late week leading to lower ventilation which includes mixing heights and transport winds. Localized gustier N-NE transport winds will affect the region but smaller coverage area. Strongest transport wind flow will likely occur on Thu during this period.
