Forecast Discussion:

The roller coaster of temperatures continues. This time however, Yuma's high temperatures are forecast to gradually climb each day through the weekend. Highs will be just slightly below normal today (normal is 85°F), warm into the upper 80s tomorrow, and then reach 90° again by Saturday. Temperatures will then plateau after that. Overall, mild and warmer weather conditions are expected through this forecast period.

Air quality-wise, ozone is expected to remain in the Good Air Quality (AQI) Index category. Ozone levels are low regionally and winds don't look favorable for transporting any ozone from California.

PM10 (dust) will continue to be primarily driven by local activity. And as typical, highest PM10 levels are expected in the morning and evening hours. But whether or not PM10 is able to reach the Moderate AQI category on any given day (it came close yesterday) will depend on how active local dust-producing sources are.
