Forecast Discussion: Today, despite light southeasterly winds gradually transporting pollutants into Minneapolis-St. Paul, low regional carryover from Monday will result in Good AQI levels. Tomorrow, a surface low-pressure system approaching southern Minnesota from the west will generate light to moderate southeasterly winds that will transport additional pollutants and moisture into the Twin Cities, supporting particle production. As a result, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Thursday, moderate northwesterly winds behind the departing low-pressure system will effectively disperse pollutants and bring clean, dry air into eastern Minnesota. These conditions will lower AQI levels to Good. Friday, surface high pressure building over eastern Minnesota will cause winds to diminish, inhibiting pollutant dispersion in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Therefore, AQI levels will be low-Moderate. Saturday, a low-pressure system rapidly moving into southern Minnesota will enhance atmospheric mixing and generate moderate north-northeasterly winds in the Twin Cities, effectively dispersing pollutants and yielding Good AQI levels. Sunday, moderate northeasterly winds will shift to northwesterly in the afternoon, continuing to disperse pollutants in Minneapolis-St. Paul and resulting in Good AQI levels.
