 Air Quality Alert, Special Statement  Statement as of 9:35 am MST on May 29, 2015


... High pollution advisory for Maricopa County including the greater
Phoenix area and Pinal County through Saturday...

The Arizona department of environmental quality in Phoenix has
extended an ozone high pollution advisory for the greater Phoenix
area through Saturday. The Pinal County department of air quality
has extended an ozone high pollution advisory for Pinal County
including Apache Junction... Casa Grande... Coolidge... and Florence
through Saturday.

This means that forecast weather conditions combined with existing
ozone levels are expected to result in local maximum 8-hour ozone
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Ozone is an air contaminant which can cause breathing difficulties
for children as well as persons with respiratory problems. A decrease
in physical activity is recommended.

If it is a regularly scheduled work day... you are urged to car pool...
telecommute... or use mass transit.

The use of gasoline-powered equipment should be reduced or done late
in the day.

204 am MST Fri may 29 2015

... Hot weather across the region this weekend...

After several weeks of cool and below normal temperatures... triple
digits will return to the lower deserts today and will linger through
the weekend. Afternoon highs above 100 degrees will be common with
many locations peaking between 105-108 degrees yielding the hottest
weather of the year so far.

While not terribly unusual for this time of year... heat is a serious
health threat and even seasoned year long residents may be affected.
Temperatures that will occur this weekend are historically known to
cause serious heat related injuries if the proper precautions are
not taken. Some things to consider before making plans this weekend:

1) try and limit outdoor activities to the early morning or evening
hours and drink plenty of water when working or playing outside.

2) check the backseat. Never leave children or pets inside a car for
any amount of time.

3) if you have not run your home air conditioner yet this
year... test it now before the heat sets in.

4) check on neighbors who may be reluctant to use air conditioning
early in the Summer season.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
735 am MST Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... hot and dry weather will arrive into southeast 
California and southern Arizona this weekend with afternoon highs 
ranging from around 102 to 108 degrees for lower elevation 
population centers. Temperatures will cool somewhat next 
week...coming closer to the seasonal normals. 


&& 


Discussion... not much going on in the weather pattern for our 
forecast area...southeast California to south central Arizona today. A minor 
shortwave will cross The Four Corners region this afternoon... 
however subsident flow across our area will be enough to lift 
afternoon temperatures on the lower deserts into the 100 to 103 
degree range. A strong high pressure system is forecast to build 
into the region this weekend and should add more heat to the area. 
Warmest temperatures peak on Sunday. Current dry and hot forecasts look OK. 
No updates planned. Previous discussion below still applies. 




Previous discussion...455 am MST... 


Early morning water vapor imagery reveals a weak shortwave trough 
across northern Arizona with a strengthening ridge off the West 
Coast. Little to no impacts have been noted with this trough...just 
an increase in cloud cover. Across the lower deserts...skies remained 
mostly clear and temperatures remained somewhat mild /mid 70s/ as of 
0830z. 


The big story for the next several days is the inevitable return of the 
triple digits across the majority of the forecast area. Excellent 
model agreement noted among today's 00z deterministic models and 
probabilistic guidance...with all signs pointing to strengthening 
upper ridging and steadily increasing 925-700mb temperatures. This 
will result in the warmest temperatures of the year /so far/ through 
the weekend...with highs peaking on Sunday in the 105-108 range. 
Blended bias corrected guidance all within a degree or two of the 
inherited forecast and no significant changes appear necessary with 
this morning's forecast. While record heat is not forecast across the 
lower deserts...Phoenix will certainly come close on Sunday /see 
climate section below/. 


Also Worth noting this weekend...deterministic models indicate a 
subtle increase in bl moisture /6-7 g/kg bl mixing ratios/ across 
eastern Arizona during the day Sunday. GFS/NAM indicating at least a 
few hundred j/kg of MLCAPE across the higher terrain locations along 
the Arizona/nm border and some of the extended hi-res guidance is hinting 
at a few showers/thunderstorms well east of Phoenix Sunday afternoon. Going 
to insert climatology-like probability of precipitation across southern Gila County although at 
this point the areal coverage of any showers/storms appears quite 
low. This moisture creep will be very short lived as the ridge axis 
shifts eastward on Monday...effectively putting an end to any precipitation 
chances through the end of next week. 


As the ridge moves east...longwave troughing is expected to develop 
across the western Continental U.S. Next week as a rather deep low moves 
through the Pacific northwest. Not expecting any direct impacts from this low 
but it will serve to knock temperatures back a few degrees by the 
middle/end of the week. Highs /while still warm compared to what 
we've seen lately/...will be on par with climatological normals for 
early June. Consensus guidance suggests widespread middle/upper 90s from 
Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl...and 
southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and 
kblh... 


High pressure will build over the area today keeping skies mostly 
clear and surface winds gnly light while following typical diurnal 
headings. No aviation weather concerns for the taf period. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Sunday through Thursday... 
as high pressure remains situated over the district...normal to 
above normal temperatures and widespread dry weather will stay in 
place through at least the middle of next week. A few isolated 
thunderstorms may form over the White Mountains and the rim Sunday 
afternoon and approach southern Gila County...however chances for 
rainfall reaching the ground is minimal. Afternoon high temperatures 
well over 100f will be common at lower elevation locations yielding 
minimum relative humidity values below 10 percent following fair 
overnight recovery. Surface winds will be primarily weak with the usual 
afternoon upslope gustiness...however a period of somewhat stronger 
winds will be possible around the middle of next week in association 
with a weather disturbance moving north of the area.
