Forecast Discussion:

Throughout this forecast period, the Desert Southwest will have a spring-like weather pattern. We'll cycle through a low-pressure wave (today), high pressure (over the weekend), and the approach of another low-pressure wave by Monday/Tuesday. And what makes this pattern suitable for this time of year is the lack of moisture and rain associated with the low-pressure waves. Instead, the most significant changes in the weather will be breezy winds, clouds, and brief shots of cooler temperatures.

In regards to PM10 (dust), PM10 could be elevated from winds during this period, including today, Monday, and Tuesday. Outside of these times, however, PM10 will remain mostly locally driven. Overall, PM10 is forecast in the Moderate AQI category today (Friday) and in Good AQI category the rest of the period.

Check back on Monday for the next forecast!
