REMARKS:Tuesday, surface high pressure over the Plains will generate light northerly winds in Louisiana, dispersing pollutants and transporting clean air into the region. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Wednesday and Thursday, increasing sunshine will enhance ozone formation in Louisiana. However, light to moderate northerly to northwesterly winds will keep pollutants well dispersed, leading to Good AQI levels across the state on both days.
