A light monsoonal weekend is ahead. Remember to set out your Bulk Trash for Pick Up starting on Monday.
Models are in agreement that we are in for a fairly quiet weekend monsoon-wise. Activity will pick up again on Monday. Drier upper-level air moved in Thursday capping the development of storms over the Valley. Look for warmer temperatures as a tradeoff to the reduced humidity. Again, the break will be short-lived as storms will be more capable of holding together while moving off of the Rim late Sunday and Monday. Until then, expect relatively good PM10 levels. Ozone concentrations may reach the middle Moderate range with the target area for highest concentrations in the north and north east part of the forecast area.
