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.

Forecast Discussion: 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 be Good. Sunday, light winds early in the day will reduce pollutant dispersion. However, moderate southerly winds will develop in the afternoon ahead of another approaching cold front, dispersing pollutants and keeping AQI levels Good in most cities. Monday, the cold front will move into Louisiana, generating moderate southwesterly winds that will disperse pollutants, and mostly cloudy skies, rain showers, and thunderstorms that will reduce ozone formation. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good.
