Forecast Discussion:

Upper-atmospheric winds will be quite active over the Southwest this week, culminating in the development of a strong jet stream over Arizona by Thursday. At the ground, this pattern will mean daily breezy winds in Nogales. Winds will be out of the southwest today and Wednesday, out of the west on Thursday, and out of the west-northwest on Friday and Saturday. And winds are generally looking to be at least 15-20 mph with higher gusts today through Friday.

Air quality-wise, the discussed winds are expected to help limit the local accumulation of both PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke). However, we can't rule out the possibility of elevated PM10/PM2.5 levels in the mornings/evenings when winds are light. Overall, both pollutants are forecast in the Good Air Quality Index category each day.
