Forecast Discussion:

Good news on this Friday, the weather pattern is changing! The high that has been anchored over the region is finally starting to weaken as the low that has been over the spur of Baja moves northward.

At the same time, the low we have been tracking all week well off the coast of California is now located about 700 miles off the coast of Baja. This low will move eastward and be located just south of Arizona this weekend and will likely spread some clouds over the area, especially on Saturday. This pattern shift will also allow afternoon high temperatures to lower into the low 70s this weekend.

Bigger changes are forecast to occur next week, with a trough of low pressure developing over the Pacific Northwest by Monday. This storm system will drop southward and through Arizona on Tuesday. The biggest impacts from this storm system will be cooler temperatures and windy conditions. Afternoon high temperatures are forecast to drop into the low 60s on Tuesday, with south-southwest winds of 15-25mph also possible during the morning and afternoon hours. This storm will also bring a slight chance of rain to the area on Tuesday, with 0.05-0.15 inches possible.

As for air quality, we are forecasting PM-10 and PM-2.5 to be in the Moderate AQI category through Monday, before lowering into the Good AQI category on Tuesday with the increased winds and rain chances.

Have a great weekend!
