Watches & Warnings

Air Quality Alert
Issued: 1:35 PM CST Dec. 11, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Air quality alert in effect from 2 PM today through 6 PM
Thursday...

The Minnesota pollution control agency has issued an air quality
alert for fine particle pollution for central and east central
Minnesota.

Fine particles have risen into the Orange (unhealthy for sensitive
groups) category in the Twin Cities metropolitan area this morning
due to stagnant weather conditions. Light winds, clear skies, and a
strong inversion have resulted in poor dispersion and air pollutants
becoming trapped near the ground. Poor dispersion conditions will
continue over the next couple days as this plume of fine particles
will slowly transport into central Minnesota. Fine particle levels
in the alert area are expected to remain near above 100 aqi until
Thursday afternoon, when front moves across the state and brings
cleaner air into the region.

An air quality alert is issued when the aqi is expected to reach or
exceed 101, a level considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.
Sensitive groups, such as people with lung disease (including
asthma), heart disease, children and older adults, and people who
are active outdoors should limit prolonged exertion.
