Austin & Central Texas Region GOOD PM2.5 PM2.5

SATURDAY 5/18/2019
Light to moderate winds, warm to hot temperatures, sufficient afternoon sunshine, and/or elevated incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo, El Paso, Houston, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Transported smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to continue spreading northward and further inland to cover much of the state, primarily along and east of a line from Big Bend to Childress, with the heaviest concentrations remaining over deep South Texas. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is forecast to reach the middle of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, and Laredo areas; the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the San Antonio and Victoria areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range in the Austin area.

Otherwise and elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds, increasing cloud cover with precipitation, and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.

SUNDAY 5/19/2019
Light to moderate winds, warm to hot temperatures, sufficient afternoon sunshine, and/or elevated incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” or possibly higher in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area; the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo and Lubbock areas; the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the El Paso and Midland-Odessa areas; and the upper end of the “Good” Range in the Austin, Big Bend, and Waco-Killeen areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Transported smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to continue impacting much of the state. The heaviest concentrations are expected to shift slightly eastward along and east of a line from Del Rio to Denison, with the most intense smoke remaining over deep South Texas and the Coastal Bend region. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is forecast to reach the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen and Laredo areas; the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and Victoria areas.

Otherwise and elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds, increasing cloud cover with precipitation, and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.

MONDAY 5/20/2019
Light to moderate winds, warm to hot temperatures, sufficient afternoon sunshine, and/or elevated incoming background levels could be enough for ozone to reach the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo, El Paso, Houston, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Transported smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to continue to filter in across the state, slightly increasing in intensity as the heaviest concentrations shift slightly westward along and east of a line from Shafter to Wellington, with the most intense smoke remaining over deep South Texas and the Coastal Bend region. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is forecast to reach the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen and Laredo areas; the lower to middle end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Midland-Odessa, San Antonio, Victoria, and Waco-Killeen areas.

Strong winds in West Texas and Southern Plains associated with an advancing front may be enough to generate to and transport light amounts of patchy blowing dust, possibly allowing the daily PM10 AQI to reach the “Moderate” range in parts of the El Paso and Lubbock areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range in the Amarillo area. The daily PM2.5 AQI could reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the El Paso and, when combined with the transported smoke, Lubbock areas as well.

Otherwise and elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds, increasing cloud cover with precipitation, and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.
