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: Thursday, light winds through the morning hours will reduce pollutant dispersion, and sunny, warm conditions will support ozone production. However, moderate southeasterly winds will disperse pollutants in the afternoon, causing AQI levels to be high-Good to low-Moderate in most cities. Friday, moderate and gusty south-southeasterly winds will develop ahead of an approaching cold front, dispersing pollutants. Furthermore, increasing clouds and rain showers will reduce ozone formation. These conditions will lead to Good AQI levels statewide. Saturday, as a cold front moves into Louisiana, moderate southwesterly winds will disperse pollutants, and mostly cloudy skies, rain showers, and thunderstorms will reduce ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will remain Good.
