Forecast Discussion: Today and tomorrow, an upper-level ridge of high pressure building over Minnesota will reduce atmospheric mixing and produce mostly sunny skies with temperatures near 90F. These conditions will result in enhanced ozone formation in the Minneapolis-St. Paul. Therefore, despite moderate southeasterly winds aiding pollutant dispersion, AQI levels will be Moderate on both days. Saturday, partly to mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures will continue to enhance ozone production. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Moderate. Sunday, increasing clouds and scattered thunderstorms associated with a frontal passage will inhibit ozone formation and enhance atmospheric mixing in the Twin Cities. Furthermore, moderate southerly winds will aid pollutant dispersion. As a result, AQI levels will lower to Good. Labor Day and Tuesday, moderate westerly winds will transport clean air into Minnesota, and cooler temperatures will decrease ozone production. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good on both days.
