Forecast Discussion:

This morning (Friday), PM10 (dust) levels are somewhat elevated at the Yuma monitor, probably from local activity. Moreover, PM10 levels may continue to be somewhat elevated through the morning due to breezy winds out of the north. The good news though, is that winds today are expected to help limit ozone levels.

Over the weekend, winds are forecast to be mostly light. As a result, ozone levels may have the potential to increase into the Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) category again. PM10 levels should remain locally-driven.

Then by Monday, winds are forecast to increase out of the south, which will be favorable conditions for lower ozone levels. In fact, breezy winds on Tuesday should help to keep ozone in the Good AQI category as well. In regards to PM10, breezes on Tuesday may result in pockets of dust later in the day; but PM10 is forecast in the Good AQI category for now.
