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: Friday, as a cold front moves through Louisiana and surface high pressure builds over the Plains, moderate northerly winds will increase mixing in the low levels of the atmosphere and effectively disperse pollutants. As a result, AQI levels will be Good statewide. Saturday and Sunday, light northeasterly to southeasterly winds will limit pollutant dispersion, and strong overnight temperatures inversions will trap pollutants near the surface. However, pollutant carryover from previous days will be low. Therefore, AQI levels will be Good to low-Moderate on both days.
