REMARKS:Sunday, calm winds becoming light southerly will inhibit pollutant dispersion throughout Louisiana. Furthermore, partly to mostly sunny skies will enhance ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be mid- to high-Moderate for most locations. Monday and Tuesday, increasing clouds will limit ozone production. However, light southerly winds will limit pollutant dispersion, and pollutant carryover from previous days will be high. These conditions will keep AQI levels Moderate statewide on both days.
