Forecast Discussion:

The cloud cover yesterday was able to keep temperatures down with the high only reaching 79 degrees in Yuma. Today, the weak disturbance that brought the clouds to the area will continue moving eastward, which will mean clearing skies throughout the day. As a result, temperatures are forecast to rise into mid to upper-80s.

The weather is expected to remain rather tranquil through early Saturday, with afternoon high temperatures in the mid-80s and winds in the 5-10mph range.

Late Saturday through Monday, we are anticipating increased breezes as a stronger trough of low pressure drops down the west coast of the United States. We will have more details about this storm tomorrow; however, it does look like it will help cool temperatures back into the 70s early next week.

As for air quality, ozone, and PM-10 are both forecast to remain in the Good AQI category through the weekend. With that said, ozone will likely be very close to the Moderate AQI category, so we will be watching trends closely.
