Forecast Discussion: Tuesday through Thursday, mostly sunny skies and temperatures near 90F will aid ozone formation in Louisiana. However, light to moderate northeasterly winds will disperse pollutants, and isolated showers and thunderstorms each afternoon will enhance vertical mixing. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good in most locations on all three days.
