Forecast Discussion: Tuesday, a low pressure system will move through Louisiana, enhancing mixing in the atmosphere and dispersing pollutants. As a result, AQI levels will be Good. Wednesday, light to moderate north-northwesterly winds behind the departing system will continue to disperse pollutants, yielding Good AQI levels in most cities. Thursday, light to moderate southerly winds will develop ahead of an approaching cold front, transporting a cleaner air mass into the state; however, warm temperatures and sunny skies will enhance ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate statewide.
