Synopsis and Discussion
  Warm weather will continue for the deserts through much of next week with afternoon temperatures reaching the low to mid 80s, topping out around 86°F in Phoenix on Sunday.  With lows in the mid 50s, it's probably safe to turn off your heaters.  There definitely no reason to be using fireplaces this time of year.  The responsible ridge of high pressure will remain in control during this period.  A few approaching systems will send some high clouds though the region from time to time, but any rain will be deflected well to the north of Arizona.  
   Air quality will change very little over the next week or so, with ozone and carbon monoxide holding in the "Good" range, and PM-10 (coarse particles) and PM-2.5 (fine particles) staying in the lower "Moderate" range.  Until tomorrow, have a good day!  -J.Paul
