AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)

Forecast Discussion: [View the ADEQ Hourly Forecast for Yuma]
Water vapor satellite this morning paints a pretty good picture of what will be shaping the weather for Yuma through the week. The storm system that moved through the state yesterday is now moving into New Mexico. At the same time, another area of low pressure can be seen developing over the Pacific Northwest. This system will slowly move toward the southeast, with the tail end of the system moving through Arizona late Thursday into Friday.

For today and tomorrow, forecasting mainly light winds and temperatures right around average for this time of year. Initially was bringing ozone into the Moderate AQI category today; however, yesterday ozone values were reasonably low across much of Southern California. As a result, transport of ozone into Yuma today does not appear to be as big of a concern, so will lower ozone concentrations today back into the Good AQI category.

As our next storm system sweeps through the state Thursday into Friday, breezes are forecast to increase. Strongest winds are expected to be in the 15-25mph range Thursday afternoon. Right now, not anticipating widespread areas of blowing dust but isolated pockets of blowing dust are certainly not out of the question. As for ozone, winds will help to disperse ozone so values will remain in the Good AQI category through the week.

While the weather system at the end of the week will not bring rain to Yuma, it will bring cooler temperatures to the region. High temperatures Thursday through Sunday are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90s!

Have a great Tuesday!
