Forecast Discussion: Today, as a low-pressure system approaches from the west, moderate to strong southerly winds ahead of it will transport smoke from agricultural fires in the Plains into Minneapolis-St. Paul. In addition, increasing humidity levels will enhance particle formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Moderate. Tomorrow, as the low-pressure system moves east and surface high pressure moves over Minnesota, lighter winds will reduce pollutant dispersion in the Twin Cities, keeping AQI levels Moderate. Monday, a low-pressure system developing to the southeast of Minnesota will produce moderate northwesterly winds in Minneapolis-St. Paul. These winds will disperse pollutants and bring cleaner air into the region, reducing particle formation and lowering AQI levels to Good. Tuesday, surface high pressure over the northern Plains will generate moderate northerly winds in the Twin Cities, dispersing pollutants and keeping AQI levels Good. Wednesday and Thursday, as a low-pressure system approaches from the west, moderate and occasionally gusty southeasterly winds ahead of it will bring moisture and pollutants into eastern Minnesota, aiding particle formation. As a result, AQI levels will be low-Moderate on both days.
