TCEQ Daily Air Quality Forecast Update

Environmental assessment information: the “Texas Daily Air Quality Forecast” from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. This information has recently been updated, and is now available [ http://www.tceq.texas.gov/airquality/monops/forecast_today.html ].

*”Thursday 10/05/2017″*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

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

*”Friday 10/06/2017″*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” or possibly higher on the west and northwest side of the Houston area and on the north and northwest side of the San Antonio area; and “Moderate” in parts of the Austin, Corpus Christi, and Dallas-Fort Worth areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and/or lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the “Good” range.

*”Saturday 10/07/2017 Outlook”*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Austin, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds, increased cloud cover, and/or lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the “Good” range.

*”Sunday 10/08/2017 Outlook”*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Austin, Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, and Waco-Killeen areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening. A slight increase in urban fine particulate background levels associated with building continental haze combined with sufficient local add-on could also be enough for the daily PM2.5 AQI to reach the lower end of the “Moderate” range primarily in parts of the Austin area, though other urban areas could see an isolated “Moderate” AQI as well.

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