Forecast Discussion:

Nogales will have one more day of warm and mild weather conditions as high pressure situates itself above Arizona today. Then beginning later this evening, winds will increase out of the east. Winds are forecast to remain breezy tonight and through Friday morning. Then on Saturday, a relatively strong wave of low pressure is forecast to pass over Arizona and bring with it stronger winds out of the southwest, widespread rain, and a cold front. Weather then looks to calm down again by Sunday.

Air quality-wise, so far this morning, PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) levels have been running normal, just somewhat elevated from local activity. The good news is that the active weather forecast in the next few days is expected to help reduce particulate levels, especially the rain on Saturday. But by Sunday, PM2.5 will have a greater potential at rebounding and may approach/reach the Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) category again.
