REMARKS:Saturday through Monday, calm to light southerly winds will limit pollutant dispersion in Louisiana, and partly sunny skies and warm temperatures will aid ozone formation. However, scattered thunderstorms each day will increase atmospheric mixing and reduce ozone production, especially across the southern portion of the state. These conditions will lead to Good to low-Moderate AQI levels in most locations on all three days.
