Forecast Discussion:

High pressure is over Arizona today, and the pattern will remain reasonably constant through tomorrow. Sunday into the first part of next week, strong high pressure will build across the West Coast of the United States. This high is now forecast to be further northwest of Arizona and not as expansive, which will allow Arizona to be sandwiched between the area of high pressure to the west and a trough to the east. The bottom line, afternoon high temperatures will still be warm (101-104 degrees) but nowhere near the 110-degree mark initially thought.

Today through the weekend, this pattern will also mean light winds, so expecting ozone to be in the low Moderate to upper Good AQI category along with morning and evening spikes in PM-10 (dust). By Monday into Tuesday, breezy north winds may develop, helping to clear out some of the locally produced dust.

Have a great weekend!
