Forecast Discussion: Today, an upper-level ridge of high pressure over the Upper Midwest will produce sunny skies and very warm temperatures in Minneapolis-St. Paul, enhancing ozone production. Furthermore, moderate southerly winds will transport additional pollutants into the region, aiding ozone and particle formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Moderate. Tomorrow, a low-pressure system will move through Minnesota, producing scattered thunderstorms and shifting winds to west-northwesterly in the afternoon. These weather conditions will help to disperse pollutants. However, pollutant carryover from the morning hours will keep AQI levels low-Moderate for particles. Wednesday, surface high pressure building over northern Minnesota will generate moderate northerly winds in the Twin Cities, dispersing pollutants and lowering AQI levels to Good. Thursday, as surface high pressure moves over the Great Lakes, winds will shift to southeasterly, transporting pollutants into Minneapolis-St. Paul. Furthermore, mostly sunny and warm conditions will aid ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be Moderate. Friday, southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front will bring additional pollutants and moisture into the Twin Cities, enhancing particle formation. Therefore, despite mostly cloudy skies reducing ozone formation, AQI levels will remain Moderate. Saturday, as the cold front moves through the Twin Cities, winds will shift to westerly, dispersing pollutants and leading to Good AQI levels.
