REMARKS:Friday through Sunday, mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-90s will enhance ozone formation across Louisiana. In addition, surface high pressure over the Gulf of Mexico will generate calm to light southerly winds across the state, limiting pollutant dispersion. Therefore, despite isolated thunderstorms each day aiding vertical mixing, AQI levels will be Good to Moderate in most cities on all three days and Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups in Baton Rouge on Friday.
