Synopsis and Discussion

Finally!  Afternoon desert temperatures above normal are expected Friday through next week.  The normal high for today is 70°F which we well not reach, but by Sunday we could see a high of 76°F!  High pressure over the southwest U.S. will remain in control through much of next week.  This means that the atmosphere will be rather stable with little mixing.  As a result, particulate levels will continue climb without any significant winds to disperse the accumulating pollutants.  Fine Particulates (PM2.5) have already found their way into the "Moderate" range at Phoenix Supersite.  The other monitors will likely follow in the next day or so.  No health advisories are being issued at this time, but if forecast models hold up and the weather pattern remains fairly persistent, next week could be interesting.  Check back tomorrow for your weekend outlook.  Have a good day!  -J.Paul
