Forecast Discussion:

A low pressure system will be making its way through the area this week providing afternoon breezes, a cooling trend, and light showers. Best chances for rain will be Wednesday afternoon when the low pressure system moves over Arizona. With this weather system, we don't anticipate particulate levels to accumulate much, especially once the rain moves through on Wednesday. As a result, we forecast to dust risk to remain Low through the forecast period.
