Forecast Discussion: Today, light and variable winds will reduce mixing and dispersion, allowing pollutants to build up in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Therefore, despite southeasterly winds developing in the afternoon and helping to disperse pollutants, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Tomorrow, moderate southeasterly winds will persist in the Twin Cities, dispersing pollutants and lowering AQI levels to Good. Monday, light west-southwesterly winds ahead of an approaching low-pressure system will limit pollutant dispersion in Minneapolis-St. Paul. However, low pollutant carryover from the previous day will keep AQI levels Good. Tuesday, as the low-pressure system passes to the south of Minnesota, winds will shift to northwesterly in the Twin Cities, transporting a cleaner air mass into the region. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good. Wednesday, surface high pressure over the Great Lakes will reduce wind speeds in Minneapolis-St. Paul, inhibiting pollutant dispersion. However, low-pollutant carryover from the previous days will keep AQI levels Good. Thursday, a strong low-pressure system approaching from the west will generate moderate to strong southeasterly winds in Minnesota. These winds will enhancing mixing near the surface, effectively dispersing pollutants. As a result, AQI levels will remain Good.
