Forecast Discussion: After a strong cold frontal passage early Tuesday morning, cold air and northwest winds helped to clear out any lingering fine particles with green (good) AQI conditions. This also pushed typical November agricultural odors well south of the area. Wednesday will see continued green AQI conditions statewide as winds become more westerly over Minnesota. A warm up for Thanksgiving with west-southwesterly winds, occasional yellow (moderate) AQI levels for far western/northwestern Minnesota due to agricultural activities, green conditions elsewhere in the state. Friday will see continued green AQI levels over much of the state with southerly winds over the south which may inch up AQI levels along with a few hours of agricultural odors before a cold front sweeps across the entire state by the evening hours.
