Air Quality Forecast and Weather Discussion
Wednesday, moderate and gusty northwesterly winds will effectively disperse pollutants and bring clean air into the Sacramento Valley. As a result, particle levels will be Good. Thursday and Friday, decreasing northwesterly winds will limit dispersion as high pressure moves into the Great Basin. However, with low pollutant carryover and sufficient low-level mixing during the daytime, particle levels will be high-Good on both days.
