Forecast Discussion: Today, surface high pressure over the Dakotas will generate moderate northerly winds in the Twin Cities, helping to disperse pollutants. However, moisture associated with fog and mist will enhance particle production, leading to low-Moderate AQI levels. Tomorrow, as a low-pressure system moves through southern Minnesota and departs to the east, moderate northerly winds will shift to westerly, transporting clean air into Minneapolis-St. Paul and leading to Good AQI levels. Sunday, light winds will limit pollutant dispersion in the Twin Cities. However, low regional carryover from Saturday will keep AQI levels Good. Monday and Tuesday, strong surface high pressure descending from southwestern Canada into the northern Plains will produce moderate north- to northwesterly winds in Minneapolis-St. Paul. These winds will bring clean, cold air into the region, keeping AQI levels Good on both days. Wednesday, a deep low-pressure system centered over the Hudson Bay will generate moderate west-southwesterly winds in the Twin Cities, dispersing pollutants and yielding Good AQI levels.
