Forecast Discussion: Friday through Sunday, a surface high pressure system over the southeastern U.S. will lead to light and variable winds across Louisiana each day, inhibiting pollutant dispersion. Furthermore, strong overnight temperature inversions will increase particle concentrations near the surface. However, an upper-level low pressure system moving over Louisiana by Saturday will enhance vertical mixing, and pollutant carryover from day to day will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate on all three days.
