Forecast Discussion: Tuesday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure over northern California will reduce vertical mixing in the atmosphere. In addition, light winds will limit pollutant dispersion in the Sacramento region. As a result, particle levels will be high-Moderate. Wednesday, the upper-level ridge will persist, continuing to inhibit vertical mixing. In addition, cool overnight temperatures will produce a strong temperature inversion, further reducing mixing and trapping pollutants near the surface. These conditions, combined with calm winds limiting pollutant dispersion, will lead to high-Moderate particle levels. Thanksgiving Day, the upper-level ridge of high pressure will begin to weaken, enhancing atmospheric mixing. However, light winds will continue to limit dispersion. These conditions, combined with pollutant carryover from previous days, will result in Moderate particle levels.
