Forecast Discussion: Today, increasing clouds and thunderstorms will reduce ozone formation in the Twin Cities, and light to moderate southeasterly winds will aid pollutant dispersion. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Tomorrow, light to moderate southeasterly winds will continue to disperse pollutants in Minneapolis-St. Paul. In addition, pollutant carryover from the previous day will be low. Therefore, despite partly sunny skies and warmer temperatures increasing ozone formation, AQI levels will be Good. Monday, partly to mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures will support ozone formation. Therefore, despite isolated showers and thunderstorms increasing atmospheric mixing, AQI levels will increase to low-Moderate. Tuesday, light to moderate northerly winds associated with a cold frontal passage will aid pollutant dispersion and bring a cleaner air mass into Minnesota. These conditions will lower AQI levels to Good. Wednesday and Thursday, light to moderate southeasterly winds will continue to aid pollutant dispersion, and slightly cooler temperatures will limit ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good on both days.
