Forecast Discussion:

We are forecasting generally light southwesterly breezes the next few days, then a little strong winds next week as a trough begins moving into the region.These winds are not forecast to be strong enough for any significant blowing dust, but should be enough to prevent any major particulate build up due to stagnation. Therefore, we are forecasting the dust risk to remain Low through the forecast period.
