Forecast Discussion:

High pressure is on the move! Today through the first part of next week, the area of high pressure currently over southeastern Arizona will move up toward the NNW and center itself over the Nevada/Utah border.

The primary weather influence of this pattern for Yuma will be the continuation of excessive heat, with afternoon high temperatures forecast to be around 115 degrees through the first part of next week.

While Yuma will remain dry during this forecast period, we are expecting an increase in thunderstorms across southern Arizona this weekend, especially on Sunday. As these storms move westward and collapse, forecasting strong outflows to develop and possibly move into the Yuma area late Sunday into early Monday morning. As a result, we will increase PM-10 concentrations during that timeframe.

Ozone is forecast to remain in the Good AQI category through the forecast period.

Have a great weekend!
