REMARKS:Monday, moderate easterly winds ahead of an approaching low-pressure system will help to disperse pollutants. In addition, increasing clouds and scattered thunderstorms will reduce ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate. Tuesday and Wednesday, as a low-pressure system moves south of Louisiana and departs to the east, moderate northerly winds will develop, dispersing pollutants and bringing clean air into the region. As a result, AQI levels will be Good statewide on both days.
