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: Friday, mostly sunny skies and a stable atmosphere will increase ozone production, and weakening northeasterly winds will inhibit pollutant dispersion. However, pollutant carryover from previous days will be low, and cooler temperatures will inhibit ozone formation. These conditions will lead to Good AQI levels. Saturday, winds will strengthen and shift to southeasterly, aiding mixing. Furthermore, increasing clouds and scattered thunderstorms will limit ozone formation. As a result, AQI levels will be Good in most locations. Sunday, a cold front will move through Louisiana and gradually shift winds to northerly. These winds will transport a clean air mass into the state, and scattered thunderstorms will enhance mixing. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good statewide.
