Forecast Discussion: Today, a strengthening upper-level ridge will limit vertical mixing and produce mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s in Minneapolis-St. Paul. These conditions will increase ground-level ozone formation. However, moderate southerly winds will aid pollutant dispersion. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good. Tomorrow, warmer temperatures and mostly sunny skies will enhance ozone production in the Twin Cities, and smoke from wildfires in the Pacific Northwest may impact the region, increasing particle and ozone levels. Therefore, despite moderate southerly winds aiding pollutant dispersion, AQI levels will be Moderate. Tuesday, temperatures in the upper-80s will support ozone formation, and light southerly winds will inhibit pollutant dispersion in Minneapolis-St. Paul. These conditions will result in Moderate AQI levels. Wednesday through Friday, a weakening upper-level ridge and a chance for thunderstorms each day will increase atmospheric mixing. However, light to moderate southerly winds will continue to transport regional pollutants into the Twin Cities. Therefore, AQI levels will be Moderate on all three days.
