Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Saturday and Sunday, as an upper-level trough of low pressure moves through the Sacramento Valley, vertical mixing will be enhanced, and cool temperatures will reduce the formation of ozone. In addition, moderate and gusty onshore winds will effectively disperse pollutants on Saturday, and light to moderate northwesterly winds will keep pollutants well dispersed on Sunday. These conditions will lead to Good ozone levels on both days. Monday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure will move over northern California, reducing mixing and producing sunny skies with warmer temperatures. These conditions will enhance ground-level ozone production. However, moderate north-northwesterly winds will keep pollutants dispersed, yielding continued Good ozone levels.
