PHOENIX — As winds lighten up, air quality is getting worse.
An Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect for the Phoenix area through Saturday.
If you have a respiratory condition, like asthma or COPD, limit your time outside or you could have trouble breathing.
Air quality in the Valley should improve a bit on Sunday as winds pick up, but that will lead to increased wildfire danger again across northern Arizona.
Most of northern Arizona is now under a Fire Weather Watch for Sunday.
Here in the Valley, daytime highs will top out in the mid 90s over the weekend with early morning lows in the 60s.
2022 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 0.55" (-2.24" from average)
