Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Tuesday and Wednesday, atmospheric mixing will increase as a trough of low pressure aloft moves across northern California. However, periods of light surface winds will limit dispersion, and smoke from regional agricultural fires will occasionally increase particle concentrations. These conditions will yield high-Good to low-Moderate particle levels on both days. Thursday, onshore winds will strengthen in the Sacramento region, enhancing atmospheric mixing and dispersion. Therefore, particle levels will be Good.
