Forecast Discussion:

We are expecting some changes to the weather and air quality this week. A weather system will begin moving into the region tomorrow, bringing some breezy afternoon winds. We are expecting wind gusts up around 25 mph for a few hours in the afternoon. This may be enough to increase PM10 levels into the low Moderates. Wednesday is looking calmer, but Thursday is when the weather system will have the largest impact. We are forecasting winds gusting up around 35 mph during the afternoon, which should kick up more dust. Then in the evening, we are forecasting rain to move through, which should significantly lower particulate levels later on Friday and on Saturday. Overall, Tuesday and Thursday look like the best chances for PM10 to reach Moderate AQI levels, the other days are forecast to stay in the Good range.
