Forecast Discussion:

Air quality has been fantastic this past weekend in Yuma. Rain and wind emptied the airshed. The airport managed to pick up 0.11 inches. The result is that we are starting the workweek out with great air quality trends. This week remains dry, but beneficial atmospheric dispersion doesn’t let up, so the expectation is the Good AQI category will be met each day and for each pollutant. As for those winds, ongoing northerly breezes are the clearing mechanism. Tuesday is particularly windy (gusts 20-30 mph during the afternoon). Only minor PM10 spikes are forecasted. Watch for a warming trend by the end of the week with cloudier skies, too.
