Forecast Discussion
Forecast Discussion: If you were lucky enough this morning, you might have felt a few spits of rain. Currently, a plume of moisture in the upper-levels of the atmosphere is streaming in from the Pacific over Arizona. This is providing morning cloud cover to the Valley, and perhaps, spits of rain here and there. Today will be the most interesting day of this forecast period, weather-speaking, as we will have more clouds in the sky and a light, afternoon breeze out of the west. Though nothing too significant, ozone levels are expected to be lower today. However, both PM-10 and PM-2.5 are once again on track to reach the Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) category today in areas south and west of the Phoenix metro area. Over the weekend, skies should clear up and winds lighten, but high temperatures are forecast to "cool down" to the low 80s and maybe the upper 70s. Ozone will remain in the Good AQI category; PM-10 and PM-2.5 will still have the potential to reach the Moderate category in the usual places south and west of the Phoenix metro area. By the beginning of next work week, high pressure will start building over the region. PM-10 and PM-2.5 levels may trend upwards, but ozone is still expected to stay in the Good AQI category. Overall, air quality is forecast to remain the relatively steady over the next several days. Check back on Monday for next week's full air quality forecast! –M.
