Austin & Central Texas Region GOOD GOOD GOOD

THURSDAY 5/16/2019
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 upper end of the “Moderate” range or possibly higher in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas; the middle to upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Amarillo and Houston areas; possibly the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Beaumont-Port Arthur, Big Bend, and Tyler-Longview areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range (perhaps with an isolated low “Moderate” or two) in parts of the Austin, San Antonio, and Waco-Killeen areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

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

FRIDAY 5/17/2019
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, Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range (perhaps with an isolated low “Moderate” or two) in parts of the Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and Tyler-Longview areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Strong afternoon winds associated with an advancing front may be enough to generate to and transport light amounts of patchy blowing dust into portions of far West Texas, including the El Paso area, though the duration and intensity of the dust is not expected to be enough to raise the daily PM2.5/PM10 AQIs beyond the “Good” range.

Southerly winds are expected to begin reintroducing light amounts of smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America 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 lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen area, and the upper end of the “Good” range in the Corpus Christi and Laredo areas, with an isolated “Moderate” or two possible.

Otherwise and elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.

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, 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 spread further inland, with the heaviest concentrations remaining over deep South Texas. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is forecast to reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, and Laredo 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.
