Forecast Discussion:

Today through at least Sunday, a mild high pressure pattern will persist over the Southwest as the jet stream remains well established over the northwest quadrant of the U.S. Then by Monday, the jet stream will begin to buckle northward, allowing the high pressure to expand over the West.

In regards to sensible weather in Nogales, high temperatures are forecast to hover around the mid-upper 90s over the next several days. Normal high temperatures are around 88°F. Skies will also remain sunny. Winds are expected to be generally light as well, with light afternoon breezes any given day.

Air quality-wise, lately, daily Air Quality Index (AQI) values for both PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) have been higher than normal for this time of year in Nogales. This is expected to continue: light winds forecast in the evening and overnight hours will be favorable conditions for the build up of particulates. Therefore, both pollutants will have the potential to reach the Moderate AQI category any given day.
