Blowing Dust Advisory
Issued: 4:42 PM MDT Jul. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Blowing dust advisory remains in effect until 8 PM MST this
evening...

* impacts... thunderstorms are developing across southern Arizona as
forecast with the expectation that strong outflows will result in
significant blowing dust across the advisory area. 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.

* Timing... through 8 PM this evening.

* Winds... easterly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts as high as 55
mph.

* Visibility... widespread areas of less than 1 mile with
localized areas of near zero visibility possible.

* 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.
