Forecast Discussion: As forecasted, PM levels experienced a considerable increase into the Moderate range on Thanksgiving Day, after a week of fairly good air quality. Stagnant weather conditions combined with festive fireplace activity explain this air quality behavior. This is also consistent with what occurred last year. The weak ridge that is in place over the desert southwest will continue to weaken and flatten. The demise of the ridge will lead to two things: 1) a colder air mass moving southward into Arizona, and 2) stronger upper-level wind speeds beginning to shift southward over Arizona. As a result, Nogales will see a cooling trend through at least Sunday, with high temperatures in the low-mid 70s Saturday and Sunday, Sunday being cooler. The stronger upper-level winds will help decrease stagnation over Nogales on Sunday. Breezy conditions at the surface Sunday afternoon could also aid in decreasing stagnation. Overall, PM-10 is expected to improve into the Low AQI range; PM-2.5 may linger in the low-Moderate range, especially if festive fireplace activity continues. Check back on Sunday for a look ahead at next week's weather and air quality. Until then, have a great holiday weekend! -M.Graves
