REMARKS:Saturday and Sunday, as a low-pressure system moves through Louisiana, widespread thunderstorms will keep the atmosphere well mixed, and mostly cloudy skies will inhibit ozone production. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good across the state on both days. Labor Day, partly cloudy skies will continue to suppress ozone formation throughout Louisiana. However, light to moderate southerly winds will transport a plume of Saharan dust into the region, increasing particle concentrations and leading to Moderate AQI levels across the state.
