REMARKS:Thursday through Saturday, light to moderate south-southeasterly winds will transport smoke from fires in Mexico and Central America into Louisiana, increasing particle levels and aiding ozone formation. However, scattered thunderstorms will enhance vertical mixing, and increasing clouds each day will limit ozone production. As a result, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate on all three days.
