Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Saturday and Sunday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure will build over northern California, reducing atmospheric mixing. Furthermore, light and variable winds will limit pollutant dispersion. These conditions will lead to Moderate particle levels on both days. Monday, the upper-level ridge will weaken, increasing vertical mixing in the atmosphere. However, generally light winds will continue to reduce pollutant dispersion, keeping particle levels low-Moderate.
