Austin & Central Texas Region OZONE OZONE GOOD

FRIDAY 4/19/2019
An Ozone Action Day will be in effect on Friday for the El Paso area. If winds are light enough and incoming background levels are high enough, ozone may reach “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” in parts of the El Paso area. Otherwise, light winds, abundant sunshine, warm temperatures, and increased incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, Houston, and Victoria areas; and the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo, Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Big Bend, Dallas-Fort Worth, Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, San Antonio, Tyler-Longview, and Waco-Killeen areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Elsewhere in South and Southwest Texas along the Rio Grande, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.

SATURDAY 4/20/2019
Light winds, abundant sunshine, warm temperatures, and/or elevated incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” in parts of the Beaumont-Port Arthur and Houston areas; the upper end of the “Moderate” range or possibly higher in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area; the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Austin, Brownsville-McAllen, Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, San Antonio, and Waco-Killeen areas; and the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo, Brownsville-McAllen, Big Bend, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Tyler-Longview, and Victoria areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Strong afternoon winds could generate and transport light amounts of patchy blowing dust into parts of West Texas, possibly raising the daily PM10 AQI to the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the El Paso area. Associated PM2.5 levels could also reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range.

Elsewhere in South and Southwest Texas along the Rio Grande, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.

SUNDAY 4/21/2019
Light winds, abundant sunshine, warm temperatures, and/or elevated incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach the upper end of the “Moderate” range or possibly higher in the Houston area, the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Waco-Killeen area; the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Big Bend, Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, San Antonio, Tyler-Longview, and Victoria areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range in parts of the Austin and Corpus Christi areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Return southerly winds are expected to begin reintroducing light amounts of smoke from agricultural burning to portions of South Texas, resulting in increasing fine particulate levels over the course of the day that could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen and Laredo areas, and the upper end of the “Good” range in the Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Victoria areas.
