Forecast Discussion: Today, a cold frontal passage will enhance atmospheric mixing and generate moderate and gusty westerly winds in Minneapolis-St. Paul. These conditions will effectively disperse pollutants and lead to Good AQI levels. Tomorrow, moderate and gusty northwesterly winds behind the departing cold front will transport a clean air mass into the Twin Cities. In addition, an upper-level trough of low pressure over the region will increase atmospheric mixing. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Tuesday, moderate northwesterly winds will continue to disperse pollutants and bring clean air into Minneapolis-St. Paul, keeping AQI levels Good. Wednesday, surface high pressure will move into Minnesota, reducing winds and limiting pollutant dispersion. However, pollutant carryover from previous days will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good. Thursday, the surface high pressure will remain over the region, generating light and variable winds and reducing pollutant dispersion. As a result, AQI levels will increase to low-Moderate. Friday, an additional high-pressure system will approach from Canada, shifting winds to northerly in the Twin Cities. These winds will aid pollutant dispersion and lead to Good AQI levels.
