Forecast Discussion:

Water vapor satellite this morning (Wednesday) shows our next storm system moving into the Pacific Northwest. This system will drop southward into Arizona Thanksgiving Day into Friday. Unfortunately, this storm will stay inland as it drops south, meaning it won't have much moisture with it, so no rain chances in Yuma. The big story with this system will be the breezy to windy conditions.

North winds are forecast to increase during the afternoon hours tomorrow (Thanksgiving) into the 15-25mph range before increasing Friday morning through the early afternoon into the 15-30mph range, with higher gusts certainly possible. These winds are forecast to be strong enough, and for a long enough duration that blowing dust and haze will be likely Thursday afternoon/evening and again on Friday morning through early afternoon. Dust being transported into the region from northwest Arizona, southern Nevada, and Western California will also be possible as strong north winds are likely along the entire Colorado River. As a result, we will issue a PM-10 High Pollution Advisory for both days.

Saturday into the first part of next week, forecasting a ridge of high pressure to build back over the region, which will result in mainly light winds and a warming trend with afternoon high temperatures rising back into the mid-70s by Monday.

Have a great Thanksgiving! And remember this holiday season, you can help improve air quality by Giving the Gift of Clean Air [Learn More].
