Forecast Discussion:

This morning, a weak wave of low pressure is sitting just off the coast of southern California, while the monsoon high pressure is still camped over Texas. This places Arizona underneath a southerly atmospheric flow. Thus, with moisture still available over southern Arizona, thunderstorm chances will continue this afternoon in/around the Nogales area.

Looking ahead, not much is expected to change in the way of the weather pattern this week; the monsoon high pressure will remain centered to the east of Arizona. As a result, thunderstorm chances are expected each afternoon for the Nogales area.

Air quality-wise, so far this morning, both PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) have been running pretty low in Nogales. It's possible that gusty winds late last night helped to reduce particulate levels. Overall for this week, any gusty winds and/or rain from thunderstorms will help to reduce particulate levels.

Both PM10 and PM2.5 are forecast in the Good Air Quality Index (AQI) category each day this week.
