Be Advised
High wind levels have the potential to suspend particulate matter into the air. High levels of PM10 may pose an impact to public health. It is recommended that active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, limit their outdoor activities.

Potential increases in PM10 concentrations may increase to moderate or unhealthy level.

Imperial County Weather Synopsis
Winds will remain light today with temperatures reaching into the mid-70s.

Skies are gradually clearing completely this morning, with far inland valleys the last to give up clouds. Some low pockets in the valleys might get some ground fog, but overall today will be quite sunny in all areas. A high pressure ridge building over the West Coast for a beautiful day. The ridge will bring fair and much warmer weather through the long holiday weekend, although there will be some high clouds, which will filter out the sun occasionally. Cold air over the interior West will generate an offshore pressure gradient Friday into Saturday. That will bring offshore winds Friday evening through Sunday to the usual spots in the foothills and below canyons and mountain passes. Saturday appears to be the windiest day, where local winds could gust over 30 mph. High temperatures will rise well above normal this weekend, with some areas forecast to get into the 80s, which is 10-15 degrees above average.

Dry and warm weather will return to the region for at least the next week as high pressure builds along the Pacific Coast, with temperatures expected to remain above seasonal normals each day. A gradual warming trend will begin today as high temperatures return closer to seasonal normals this afternoon. Any chance for rainfall will remain minimal. Temperatures will also climb back to around 10 degrees above seasonal normals as the upper ridge amplifies and height rises occur.
