Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Tuesday, moderate north-northwesterly winds will disperse pollutants in the Sacramento region. Therefore, despite lighter winds reducing dispersion in the evening, particle levels will be Good. Wednesday and Thursday, light and variable winds through the morning hours will limit pollutant dispersion. In addition, a temperature inversion will reduce mixing each evening, trapping pollutants near the ground. However, light northwesterly winds will develop each afternoon, aiding pollutant dispersion and leading to Moderate particle levels on both days.
