Forecast Discussion:

The trough moving through yesterday brought some breezy winds, but they weren't strong enough to cause any significant dust issues. All pollutants stayed in the Good AQI range yesterday. Looking ahead, weather conditions will settle down the next few days with a ridge building in over the region. Then, a trough will skirt through northern Arizona on Friday bringing some breezy winds again. Overall though, we don't anticipate any winds strong enough to cause significant dust issues. As for ozone and PM2.5, we also don't expect any issues there either. Therfore, all pollutants are forecast to remain in the Good AQI category through the forecast period.
