Forecast Discussion:

Today and Thursday, the monsoonal high pressure will remain centered to the east of Arizona (generally over New Mexico). This will result in a southerly flow into Arizona. A southerly flow means a tap into moisture--and moisture is one of the ingredients for thunderstorms. Therefore, thunderstorms will be possible in/around the Nogales area both days.

Then on Friday, the monsoonal high pressure will migrate westward and its center will land right over Arizona. Its center will then generally remain over the state through Saturday and then shift northward to Utah on Sunday. During this time, thunderstorm chances look to diminish as the moisture tap weakens, but they'll continue to be possible. High temperatures will respond by increasing, peaking just above 100°F during the weekend. The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Thursday through Sunday.

Air quality-wise, both PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) will remain in the Good Air Quality Index (AQI) category each day. Any clouds, winds, and/or rain from thunderstorms will help to reduce particulate levels.
