REMARKS:Monday, light and variable winds will inhibit pollutant dispersion across Louisiana. In addition, partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures near 90F will enhance ozone formation. Therefore, despite isolated thunderstorms enhancing vertical mixing, AQI levels will be Good to Moderate and high-Moderate in Baton Rouge. Tuesday and Wednesday, slightly stronger southerly winds will aid pollutant dispersion, and isolated showers and thunderstorms will increase vertical mixing. However, warm temperatures and partly sunny skies will continue to aid ozone production. These conditions will keep AQI levels Good to Moderate on both days.
