Synopsis and Discussion
Pleasant weather is expected the next few days before another trough of low pressure barrels through the western U.S Tuesday and Wednesday. The difference this time is that the center of the trough will remain north of Arizona, resulting in breezy conditions and cooler air with no rain. Afternoon desert temperatures will drop from the low to mid 70s Monday and Tuesday to the low to mid 60s Wednesday through Friday. Winds could possibly produce some blowing dust across the desert floors Tuesday and Wednesday as the tail end of the associated cold front sweeps through Arizona. This means that Particulate levels will increase through Wednesday and Thursday. Depending on how quickly they climb the next couple of days and how strong forecasted winds will be, a Health Watch may be necessary by Wednesday. Unfortunately, the picturesque Phoenix skyline we saw Friday afternoon will be replaced by the hazy, brown cloud weve come to know this winter season. The good news is that as the afternoon temperatures increase heading towards summer, the early morning inversion will not last as long, allowing trapped pollution to disperse more readily. Check back tomorrow for the latest information. Have a good day! J.Paul
