Forecast Discussion:

High pressure is now centered over the state, which will result in light winds today. The high will slowly shift eastward tomorrow into Saturday as a weak (and dry) storm system brushes through the region. As this system leaves the area late Saturday into Sunday, forecasting north winds of 10-15mph to develop Sunday morning. Was originally forecasting stronger winds with this system which could have picked up more widespread dust, but with weaker winds now predicted only expecting isolated pockets of blowing dust.

A large ridge of high pressure will build back into the Western US to start next week, which will bring light winds back to the region. Afternoon high temperatures throughout this forecast period are forecast to be in the mid-80s.

With stagnant conditions in place, PM-10 has been running on the higher side. On Tuesday and Wednesday, PM-10 ended the day in the Moderate AQI category. With these conditions likely to continue, expecting PM-10 to be in the upper Good to low Moderate category through the forecast period.

Ozone is forecast to remain in the Good AQI category through the forecast period.
