Forecast Discussion:

Today a low pressure wave will slowly migrate through the Southwest, resulting in breezy winds out of the west-southwest for Douglas. With winds up to 20-25 mph possible and higher gusts, blowing dust will be possible. Therefore, hourly forecast PM10 (dust) levels have been raised for this afternoon. PM10 is forecast in the Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) category.

Tomorrow, winds will then shift to out of the northwest as a high pressure approaches from the west. Elevated PM10 may be possible, but PM10 is expected to remain in the Good AQI category.

Then by Wednesday, the high pressure will take over the region, resulting in increasing temperature trends and lighter winds. PM10 should be mostly locally driven on Wednesday and Thursday.

Finally, on Friday, winds are forecast to increase out of the southwest as the weather pattern over the region begins to change again. PM10 could be elevated again. But for now, PM10 is forecast in the Good AQI category.
