Forecast Discussion:

After an impressive midweek high-pressure ridge, the weather pattern is becoming a progressive weak ridge/weak trough setup, which really has been the tune for much of the late spring. Expect seasonable temperatures (low 100s this time of year) and afternoon breezes from the west today and then out of the south going forward. Ozone trends down with the wind shift back into the Good AQI category.

On a side note, the official start of the monsoon season is tomorrow, June 15th! Although the forecast is dry to kick off the season, it is worth considering now the possible weather and air quality hazards that can get spurred by an active monsoon pattern, such as dust storms from thunderstorm outflows. Long-range weather model guidance (i.e., GFS) is hinting the development of the classic monsoon “Four Corners High” at the tail end of the month.

Enjoy the weekend!
