Forecast Discussion: Today, southerly winds ahead of an approaching cold front will transport pollutants and moisture into the Twin Cities, increasing particle production and yielding low-Moderate AQI levels. Tomorrow, as the cold front moves through Minnesota, moderate to strong southerly winds will shift to northwesterly, dispersing pollutants and keeping the lower levels of the atmosphere well mixed. Therefore, AQI levels will lower to Good. Wednesday, moderate northwesterly winds behind the departing cold front will continue to disperse pollutants and bring clean, cold air into Minneapolis-St. Paul, yielding Good AQI levels. Thursday, moderate southwesterly winds will develop as surface high pressure builds over the Ohio River Valley, transporting regional pollutants into the Twin Cities and leading to low-Moderate AQI levels. Friday and Saturday, as a weak cold front moves through Minnesota and departs to the east, light to moderate west-northwesterly winds will gradually bring clean, dry air into Minneapolis-St. Paul, limiting particle formation. As a result, AQI levels will be Good on both days.
