Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Saturday, light winds and a temperature inversion will hinder dispersion and low-level mixing in the morning. However, light northerly winds will gradually carry clean air into the Sacramento region in the afternoon, and warm temperatures will aid low-level mixing. These conditions will lead to low-Moderate particle levels. Sunday, light and variable winds will hinder dispersion throughout the morning hours, allowing pollutants to accumulate in the Sacramento region. However, light to moderate onshore winds will develop through the afternoon, dispersing pollutants and keeping particle levels low-Moderate. Monday, as a cold front moves through northern California, moderate onshore winds and scattered rain showers will keep pollutants well dispersed, yielding high-Good particle levels.
