Forecast Discussion:

This morning, PM10 (dust) levels have been running low because of some light rain yesterday. However, PM2.5 (smoke) levels are running a little bit elevated. This isn't surprising though, give the cold low temperatures in the 30s.

Looking ahead, Nogales will have some active weather over the next several days. First of all are the daytime winds. Afternoon breezes are expected each day through at least Friday, with strongest winds forecast for Thursday (tomorrow). Winds will also vary in direction from day to day.

Next, more rain chances are on the way. The main mechanism for the rain will be a low pressure wave diving southward into Arizona. Currently, the window for rain looks to be late Saturday into Sunday.

Air quality-wise, PM10 levels are forecast to be lower for the next several days, gradually increasing from day to day. Then over the weekend, rain should help to lower PM10 again. A similar story is expected for PM2.5, though Moderate PM2.5 levels will be possible this week.
