AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)
Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.

Forecast Discussion: Sunday, increasing sunshine across much of Louisiana and temperatures around 90F will enhance ozone production. Furthermore, light southeasterly winds will hinder pollutant dispersion. These conditions will lead to Good AQI levels for most locations. Monday and Tuesday, an upper-level ridge of high pressure passing over the Bayou State will decrease vertical mixing. In addition, light and variable winds will allow pollutants to accumulate, while mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low-90s continue to support ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be high-Good to Moderate for most cities on both days.
