Statement as of 3:08 AM MDT on July 25, 2014


... Blowing dust advisory remains in effect from 2 PM this
afternoon to 9 PM MST this evening...

A blowing dust advisory remains in effect from 2 PM this
afternoon to 9 PM MST this evening.

* Impacts... blowing dust can restrict visibilities below a mile
posing a significant hazard to motorists. In addition... strong
and gusty winds will likely suspend dust into the air that
people and animals breathe. Individuals with heart disease and
respiratory sensitivities may want to reduce their level of
exertion to limit the dust they breathe into their lungs...
especially if the are near dust-prone locations. Those most at
risk may feel better if they avoid outside exercise today...
keeping windows and doors closed to help reduce exposure.

* Timing... strong and gusty thunderstorm outflows should
initially develop across eastern Pima County... southeast Pinal
County and the Tohono Oodham Nation by mid to late afternoon.
These outflows will generally track to the northwest...
potentially consolidating and forming a haboob. This type of
scenario would impact the Interstate 10 corridor northwest of
Tucson.

* Winds... thunderstorm outflow winds of 35 to 45 mph... generally
blowing towards the northwest.

* Visibility... areas of blowing dust will restrict visibilities
below a mile. Locally dense blowing dust will significantly
reduce visibilities below a quarter mile.

* For a detailed view of the hazard area... visit
weather.Gov/Tucson and click on the detailed hazards tab

* current air pollution levels are available from the Pima
County department of environmental quality website at
www.Pima.Gov/deq or by calling (520) 724-7446

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A blowing dust advisory means that blowing dust will restrict
visibilities below one mile in some areas. Travelers are urged to
use caution. If you encounter localized dense blowing dust...
especially near plowed fields or construction sites... do not
drive into it if at all possible.
