Forecast Discussion: Today, as a low-pressure system approaches Minnesota from the southwest, moderate southeasterly winds will disperse pollutants, and increasing clouds will reduce ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good. Tomorrow, as a low-pressure system moves through southern Minnesota, moderate easterly winds and scattered thunderstorms will keep pollutants well dispersed in the Twin Cities, yielding Good AQI levels. Saturday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure will begin to build over Minnesota, reducing atmospheric mixing. In addition, mostly sunny skies will aid ozone formation. However, light northerly winds through the morning hours will bring clean air into the region, keeping AQI levels Good. Sunday and Monday, the upper-level ridge will strengthen, limiting vertical mixing and producing mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s. These conditions will increase ground-level ozone formation. Furthermore, light to moderate southerly winds will bring regional pollutants into the area, aiding both ozone and particle production. Therefore, AQI levels will be Moderate on both days. Tuesday, the upper-level ridge will weaken, increasing atmospheric mixing. However, mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures will continue to support ozone formation, keeping AQI levels Moderate.
