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.

Forecast Discussion: Friday, surface high pressure over Louisiana will result in calm to light winds, limiting pollutant dispersion. In addition, an overnight temperature inversion will trap pollutant near the surface. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good to Moderate. Saturday, winds will gradually shift to northerly as a cold front enters the state, bringing a cleaner air mass into Louisiana. However, calm to light winds through the morning hours will continue to limit dispersion, keeping AQI levels Good to Moderate. Sunday, moderate north-northeasterly winds behind the departing front will aid pollutant dispersion and continue to transport clean air into the state. As a result, AQI levels will lower to Good statewide.
