Forecast Discussion:

Water vapor satellite this morning shows high pressure beginning to build back into the Southwestern United States. A storm system currently just off the coast of the Pacific Northwest will brush by Arizona to the north on Friday into Saturday, which will weaken the high slightly. As that storm system moves eastward, high pressure will strengthen over the entire Western United States, resulting in near-record to record high temperatures to start next week. We could be looking at afternoon high temperatures right around the 110-degree mark by Monday and Tuesday.

Besides hot weather, this weather pattern will also result in relatively calm winds, mainly clear skies, and no chance of rain.

As for air quality, ozone is forecast to remain in the upper Good AQI category through the forecast period, with PM-10 also staying in the Good AQI category. Still expect to see PM-10 spikes in the morning and evening hours due to local dust production; however, plenty of heating during the day will allow concentrations to lower.

Make it a great Wednesday!
