Synopsis and Discussion

Local ozone levels rose into the mid-moderate range of the Air Quality
Index on Sunday.  Under sunny skies, accompanied by warmer afternoon
temperatures and with more weekday ozone precursor emissions, another
upward jump appears likely today- mainly over the east and southeast
Valley due to prevailing west to northwesterly surface winds. In the
meantime, another strong upper level trough and surface cold front in
the mid-latitude storm track are scheduled to approach AZ from the
northwest on Tuesday and arrive on Wednesday.  No rain is forecast to
occur in the Phoenix metro area, but strong and gusty winds will be
present - especially on Wednesday - and due to the potential for
elevated to high PM-10 (coarse particle) levels due to
blowing/suspended/transported dust, a PM-10 Health Watch issuance for
Wednesday is likely.  -Reith
