Forecast Discussion:

PM2.5 peaked into the low Moderates yesterday, but other than that Yuma saw Good air quality over the weekend. There is currently a trough approaching from the west bringing showers to portions of the state, unfortunately, we are not expecting any rain here in Yuma. No significant winds are expected today or tomorrow and therefore, particulate levels are forecast to stay in the Good AQI range.

On Thursday, we are expecting some breezy northerly winds on the backside of this trough. This is forecast to kick up a little dust and potentially lift PM10 into the Moderate AQI category. Late Friday and into Saturday, the next weather system will move in from the north, bring more gusty northerly winds to the Yuma area. Again, we are expecting some dust to get kicked up, resulting in Moderate particulate levels.

Ozone, as is typical this time of year, is forecast to stay in the Good AQI range through the forecast period.
