Forecast Discussion:

This morning's water vapor satellite tells the story, and the story's title is dry! High pressure continues to sit across the southeastern portion of the United States with a trough along the West Coast. This pattern is pushing all the monsoon moisture off into New Mexico, leaving Arizona dry.

Later this week, the trough will lift toward the northeast allowing high pressure to move westward and center itself over the Four Corners late Friday into the weekend. This shift will open the door for moisture to move back into the state, with thunderstorm chances returning. For Yuma, chances will be slight (10% or less) from late Saturday into early next week, but at least there is a chance!

The bigger story with this pattern will be warming temperatures, with afternoon highs rising into the 110-degree range Saturday into the first part of next week.

As for air quality, with a southerly flow through the forecast period, expect ozone to be in the Good AQI category. PM-10 (dust) and PM-2.5 (smoke) are also forecast to be in the Good AQI category.

Make it a great day!
