Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Monday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure will begin to build over California, limiting vertical mixing. However, moderate and gusty north-northwesterly winds will disperse pollutants. As a result, particle levels will be high-Good. Tuesday and Wednesday, the ridge of high pressure will remain over region, reducing atmospheric mixing. Furthermore, northwesterly winds will weaken, limiting pollutant dispersion. These conditions will cause particle levels to be low-Moderate on Tuesday and mid-Moderate on Wednesday.
