Forecast Discussion: Today, mostly sunny skies and temperatures near 90F will enhance ozone formation in the Twin Cities. However, light to moderate southwesterly winds will aid pollutant dispersion, and pollutant carryover from previous days will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will be high-Good. Tomorrow, lighter winds will reduce pollutant dispersion. However, increasing clouds will limit ozone production, and scattered thunderstorms will enhance atmospheric mixing. As a result, AQI levels will remain Good. Thursday, mostly cloudy skies and rain showers will continue to inhibit ozone formation, and light northeasterly winds will bring a clean air mass into Minneapolis-St. Paul. These conditions will keep AQI levels Good. Friday through Sunday, light southeasterly winds will gradually transport regional pollutants into the Twin Cities, and partly to mostly sunny skies will aid ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be low-Moderate on all three days.
