Forecast Discussion: Saturday, August 1: Moderate northwesterly winds will disperse pollutants in Columbus, yielding Good AQI levels. Sunday, August 2: Moderate southwesterly winds will develop ahead of an approaching cold front, transporting pollutants into the Columbus region. In addition, warm, sunny conditions will enhance ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Monday, as the cold front passes through Ohio, moderate winds shifting from southwesterly to northwesterly will bring a cleaner air mass into the Columbus area. Furthermore, cloudy skies and thunderstorms will inhibit ozone production, resulting in Good AQI levels. Tuesday and Wednesday, lighter winds will reduce pollutant dispersion; however, partly cloudy skies will limit ozone formation, and low pollutant carryover from the previous days will keep AQI levels Good on both days. Thursday, northeasterly winds will develop ahead of an approaching low-pressure system, transporting a cleaner air mass into the Columbus region and keeping AQI levels Good.
