Forecast Discussion: Today, surface high pressure moving from Canada into northern Minnesota will produce moderate northwesterly winds in the Twin Cities, dispersing pollutants and leading to Good AQI levels. Tomorrow, light and variable winds will reduce mixing and dispersion, allowing pollutants to build up in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Therefore, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Sunday, as a low-pressure system passes to the south, moderate southeasterly winds will transport moisture and pollutants into the Twin Cities, enhancing particle production and keeping AQI levels Moderate. Monday, light southwesterly winds ahead of an additional low-pressure system will limit pollutant dispersion in Minneapolis-St. Paul, leading to continued low-Moderate AQI levels. Tuesday, as the low-pressure system passes through Minnesota, light to moderate northwesterly winds will aid pollutant dispersion. Therefore, AQI levels will lower to Good. Wednesday, as surface high pressure moves east of Minnesota, light southeasterly winds will gradually transport regional pollutants into Minneapolis-St. Paul, increasing particle concentrations. As a result, AQI levels will be low-Moderate.
