Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Monday, moderate north-northwesterly winds will keep pollutants well dispersed in the Sacramento area, yielding Good particle levels. Tuesday, winds will weaken and shift to southeasterly late in the day, reducing pollutant dispersion. However, low pollutant carryover from previous days will keep particle levels Good. Wednesday, light winds throughout most of the day will limit mixing and dispersion, allowing pollutants to accumulate in the Sacramento region. However, a brief period of moderate northwesterly winds will disperse pollutants in the afternoon, leading to low-Moderate particle levels.
