Forecast Discussion:

Another day, another dry system comes and goes in the desert southwest. Building high pressure will be the main story for this week, but after a nearby disturbance forcing northerly winds throughout the state of Arizona over the next couple of days. Northerly breezes from today to Thursday will incapsulate the state, bringing possible blowing dust to certain areas.

Air quality in Douglas yesterday came in as expected, with the usual morning and evening signatures in PM10 (dust). The steady increase in particulates will continue today, but in this case, northerly breezes may help to keep airborne particulates down, and disperse them out of the area. By Thursday night, easterly winds will pick up to around 15-20 mph, bringing with it a potential for some blowing dust into Friday.

PM10 will continue to increase as the surface dries out more and more, but spikes surrounding the Friday blowing dust potential will be mainly locally driven. For your air quality forecast, PM10 will remain in the mid-high Good AQI for the rest of the week.
