Forecast Discussion:

Have you stepped outside yet today? If so, you likely felt the moisture! Dew points in Yuma are back into the mid-70s as a surge of moisture took place overnight. Winds this morning are also out of the SSE at 15-20mph, which is helping to import moisture into the region.

Today, high pressure will still have a small grip on the state, which will mean temperatures will continue to be in the 108-110 degree range this afternoon. By tomorrow, a weak trough will brush through the region which will weaken the high, and allow temperatures to drop to near normal tomorrow through Sunday. Later this weekend into the first part of next week, high pressure will rebuild over Southern Nevada. With this pattern, expecting breezy south/southeast winds to continue for the majority of the forecast period.

Given the southerly winds, Ozone is forecasted to be in the Good AQI category. PM-10 will be the primary concern, with gusty winds from time-to-time. Right now, thinking the highest risk for dust will still be Friday night into early Saturday.
