Forecast Discussion: Thursday, sunny and hot conditions will support ozone formation in the Sacramento region. However, moderate northwesterly winds will develop in the Sacramento Valley, dispersing pollutants. As a result, ozone levels will be Moderate. Friday is a Spare The Air Day in the Sacramento region. Northwesterly winds will weaken and shift to southwesterly, reducing dispersion and allowing pollutants to accumulate. In addition, sunny skies and temperatures in the triple digits will enhance ozone production, and an upper-level ridge of high pressure will limit vertical mixing in the atmosphere. Therefore, ozone levels will be Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. Saturday, hot temperatures will persist, supporting ozone formation. In addition, light southwesterly winds will inhibit dispersion, and pollutant carryover from Friday will be high. As a result, ozone levels will remain Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups.
