REMARKS:Monday through Wednesday, partly cloudy skies will reduce ozone formation in Louisiana, and scattered thunderstorms will enhance vertical mixing in the atmosphere, helping to disperse pollutants. However, southwesterly winds will gradually transport Saharan dust into the region. Therefore, AQI levels will be Moderate for particles statewide on all three days.
