REMARKS:Monday, mostly sunny skies through midday will enhance ozone production across southern Louisiana. However, increasing clouds and scattered thunderstorms will reduce ozone formation in the afternoon. In addition, light to moderate southeasterly winds will help to disperse pollutants. These conditions will lead to Moderate AQI levels throughout most of the state. Tuesday and Wednesday, increasing southeasterly winds will disperse pollutants, and mostly cloudy skies will limit ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate on both days.
