Forecast Discussion:

Thanks to high pressure, Nogales will experience a warming trend today (Friday) through Sunday. A rather pleasant weekend is in store. The only wrinkle in the forecast, however, will be breezy southeasterly winds this morning. But these winds should peter out later in the afternoon.

In regards to air quality, today's winds are expected to help limit PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke). However, by the evening, both pollutants should increase again. Then, during the rest of the weekend, both pollutants should remain locally driven. PM2.5 is forecast in the Moderate Air Quality Index (AQI) category each day.

Now, looking beyond Sunday, another low pressure wave will traverse Arizona, resulting in cooler temperatures for Monday/Tuesday. Monday will also be the next breezy day, with winds picking up out of the west. Similar to today, winds should help to limit PM10 and PM2.5 levels. However, mornings and evenings will continue to be calm, allowing for PM to be locally elevated. PM2.5 is forecast in the Moderate AQI category each day.

Check back on Monday for the latest!
