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)

Forecast Discussion: Monday, mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s will enhance ozone formation in Louisiana. However, light to moderate northwesterly winds will disperse pollutants. As a result, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate statewide. Tuesday, warm and sunny conditions will continue to support ozone formation in most cities. Furthermore, light morning winds will reduce pollutant dispersion. However, moderate southerly winds will develop ahead of an approaching low pressure system in the afternoon, dispersing pollutants and keeping AQI levels Good to low-Moderate. Wednesday, increasing clouds will limit ozone production, and moderate southerly winds will keep pollutants well dispersed, yielding Good AQI levels statewide.
