Forecast Discussion: Today, moderate northwesterly winds will transport clean, dry air into Minneapolis-St. Paul, inhibiting particle production and yielding Good AQI levels. Tomorrow, light southeasterly winds will develop as surface high pressure moves over Wisconsin, reducing pollutant dispersion in the Twin Cities and gradually bringing regional moisture and pollutants into the area. Therefore, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Saturday, moderate southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front will transport additional pollutants and moisture into Minneapolis-St. Paul, enhancing particle formation and keeping AQI levels low-Moderate. Sunday, the cold front will move through eastern Minnesota, increasing vertical mixing in the atmosphere and generating strong winds that will shift to northwesterly. These weather conditions will effectively disperse pollutants, lowering AQI levels to Good. Monday and Tuesday, a weak surface low-pressure system will move through eastern Minnesota and depart to the east, enhancing atmospheric mixing. However, light winds will limit pollutant dispersion on both days. While low pollutant carryover from Sunday will keep AQI levels Good on Monday, AQI levels will increase to Moderate on Tuesday.
