Forecast Discussion:

Quiet weather is on tap for the end of this work week and upcoming weekend. High clouds will obscure the sky from time to time with seasonably warm (compared to other areas of the country) afternoon high temperatures in the 60s to near 70 degrees! The ground surfaces will begin to dry out and PM10 levels will slowly rise into the middle and perhaps upper range of the good AQI category. Have low dust risks for the entire five day forecast period. Check back tomorrow for an updated dust risk forecast.
