Forecast Discussion: Today, moderate southeasterly winds will transport regional pollutants into Minneapolis-St. Paul, and moisture associated with light rain, fog, and mist will enhance particle production. These conditions will result in mid-Moderate AQI levels. Tomorrow, a low-pressure system moving through Iowa will enhance vertical mixing in the atmosphere and shift winds to northerly in the Twin Cities. However, regional pollutant carryover from previous days will lead to low-Moderate AQI levels. Wednesday, light to moderate northwesterly winds behind the departing low-pressure system will disperse pollutants and transport a cleaner, drier air mass into Minneapolis-St. Paul. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good. Thursday, light southerly winds will develop ahead of a fast-approaching low-pressure system, gradually bringing regional pollutants and moisture into Minneapolis-St. Paul. However, low pollutant carryover from Wednesday will keep AQI levels Good. Friday and Saturday, as the low-pressure system moves through southern Minnesota and departs to the east, moderate northwesterly winds behind it will transport a clean air mass into the Twin Cities, yielding Good AQI levels on both days.
