Forecast Discussion:

Over the past 48 hours, the Bisbee Douglas International Airport saw around 0.20" of rainfall. Douglas itself likely saw a little less, but regardless, it was a relatively rainy weekend.

Air quality-wise, rain is the best thing, since it effectively knocks PM10 (dust) out of the air. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that PM10 has been running low in Douglas since Saturday.

Looking ahead, the weather pattern over the U.S. Southwest will remain somewhat active, with various low pressure waves passing through. Unlike this weekend, rain is not expected. Instead, Douglas will have a few breezy afternoons--particularly tomorrow.

Air quality-wise, given the recent rain, PM10 is expected to easily remain in the Good Air Quality Index category each day this week. The breezy winds are also not expected to be an issue, as soils should be stabilized.
