Forecast Discussion:

A high-pressure system has finally set over our region. This system will continue our light, south wind, warming temperatures, and clear skies. Hopefully, you're ready for more triple-digit days! Thursday and Friday are looking to be the best chance for Yuma to hit 100 degrees. The weekend should bring some relief as a low-pressure system is looking to move into the western region.

This low-pressure system won't only slightly drop temperatures, but it will also bring breezy west-southwest winds Saturday and Sunday afternoon/evening. These wind conditions should help clear out anything that has been lingering around all week.

Overall, the weather story is looking to following trends of the past couple of days. This weekend we will see a slight shift in our conditions with low-pressure grazing our state. Particulates could see elevated levels from this system moving through over the weekend. PM10 (dust) and PM2.5 (smoke) are still expected to remain in the Good AQI range for the forecast period. Ozone is the main subject to watch and is forecast to be in the lower Moderate category for the next several days with stagnate conditions and preexisting ozone.

Happy Wednesday!
