Austin & Central Texas Region GOOD GOOD OZONE

TUESDAY 3/12/2019
Patchy smoke from agricultural and industrial burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to continue across much of South and Southwest Texas, possibly raising the daily PM2.5 AQI to “Moderate” levels in parts of the Big Bend, Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, Laredo, Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, and San Antonio and Victoria areas.

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

WEDNESDAY 3/13/2019
Patchy smoke from agricultural and industrial burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to linger across portions of south and central Texas early in the day. The smoke will be then transported along the edge of an advancing cold front as it moves across the state, briefly raising PM2.5 levels as the front arrives. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is expected to reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio areas, and the upper end of the “Good” range in parts of the Laredo and Victoria areas.

Strong afternoon winds could generate and transport patchy blowing dust into portions of far West Texas and Southern Plains. However, increased soil moisture from expected precipitation over the previous two days should preclude any widespread impacts and the daily PM10/PM2.5 AQIs are not expected to go beyond the upper end of the “Good” range in these areas. Any generated dust will be transported along the leading edge of the front briefly raising particulate levels as the front arrives, though widespread precipitation will help limit any impacts.

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

THURSDAY 3/14/2019 — OZONE WARNING
Increasing incoming background levels behind the departing cold front could be high enough for ozone to reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Corpus Christi, El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, and Tyler-Longview areas with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Patchy smoke from agricultural and industrial burning in Mexico and Central America is expected to linger along the coast early in the day before the advancing front moves offshore. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is expected to reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Brownsville-McAllen and Houston areas, and the upper end of the “Good” range in parts of the Beaumont-Port Arthur, Corpus Christi, and Victoria areas.

Elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds, cold temperatures, ingering cloud cover, and/or lower incoming background levels should help keep air quality in the “Good” range in most spots.
