Forecast Discussion:

The main weather story for this forecast period will be the heat. High pressure will begin to develop over the Southwest this weekend and become rather strong early next week. As a result, Arizona's first real heatwave will ensue. High temperatures for Nogales are forecast above 105°F Saturday through at least Tuesday. This has prompted the National Weather Service to issue an Excessive Heat Warning for those days.

Air quality-wise, both PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) are forecast in the Good Air Quality Index category each day through at least Tuesday. Though we can't rule out the possibility of locally elevated PM levels in the mornings, the hotter daytime temperatures will help to quickly bring down the PM levels. Afternoon breezes will also help to disperse local pollution.

Wildfire note: Smoke from the Shamrock Fire, located about 12 miles east of Nogales, may be visible during the day. Minimal overnight impacts are expected given light fuels that the fire is burning in.
