Blowing Dust Advisory
Issued: 7:29 PM MDT Jul. 26, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Blowing dust advisory in effect until 9 PM MST this evening...

The National Weather Service in Tucson has issued a blowing dust
advisory... which is in effect until 9 PM MST this evening for
areas of eastern Pima County mainly south of Tucson.

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 they are near dust-prone locations. Those most
at risk may feel better of they avoid outside exercise today...
keeping windows and doors closed to help reduce exposure.

* Timing... through 9 PM.

* Winds... wind gusts 20 to 40 mph out of the east.

* Visibility... below 1 mile... briefly below 1/4 mile 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...

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.
