Forecast Discussion:

High pressure will influence the region over the next several days. This will bring generally light winds to the area, which will allow some buildup of particulates in the mornings, but we don't expect that to be enough to warrant increasing the dust risk level. Over the weekend, storm chances will increase over southeastern Arizona, but at this time we aren't expecting outflow winds to significantly impact the Phoenix area. Therefore, we are keeping the dust risk level Low through the forecast period.
