Forecast Discussion:

Another chilly morning in the Rillito area today. At least the daytime temperatures have been warming to the mid-60-degree range each afternoon. We'll start to see a slight warming trend as we approach the weekend and high pressure begins to move over the region.

Before we see the ridge completely dominate the air space, another leg from the recent passing trough will impact Arizona. Strong easterly winds will be a result of this follow-up system on Friday. Sustained wind speeds could range from 15-25 mph, with higher gusts possible.

As we approach early next week, a low-pressure system will begin moving in from off the coast of California. Precipitation chances are slim as this system will not be abundant with moisture, but we'll take any chance we can get!

In regards to PM10, this particulate with remain in the Good AQI category with the exception of Friday. With the strong easterly winds moving through, a brief period of elevated dust in the afternoon is possible.

Have a great day!
