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 air quality, PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) could be elevated from local activity when conditions are calm in the mornings/evenings. Any winds during this period should also help to reduce any locally produced PM10 or PM2.5. Overall, both pollutants are forecast in the Good AQI category.

Check back on Monday for the next forecast!
