Forecast Discussion:

Seasonable warmth experienced of late gets pushed back midweek. A storm system impacts the Yuma area between late Tuesday and pretty much the entire day on Wednesday and, yes, rain probabilities are on the higher end for the Lower Colorado River Valley with this one. The rain window opens between midnight Wednesday through the early afternoon hours. Scattered amounts ranging from 0.05 to 0.25 inches are possible. The other main features of the event are windy conditions focused on Wednesday afternoon/evening and cooler temperatures in general with partly cloudy skies.

For air quality, a midweek dip in both ozone and PM10 are expected coincident with the unsettled weather. Light dispersion and unobstructed sunshine for the latter part of the week means higher ozone. At the moment predicted ozone AQIs are capped in the upper Good AQI range Thursday and Friday. Daily values could be adjusted upward into the lower Moderate AQI range should a stable atmosphere become more apparent.

Enjoy the spring season weather!
