Forecast Discussion

*”Thursday 06/14/2018 “*
Winds may be light enough and/or incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” or possibly higher in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and “Moderate” in parts of the Amarillo, Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Transported light smoke from fires in the western United States and west Texas have resulted in slightly elevated fine particulate levels this morning, and could allow for the daily PM2.5 AQI to reach “Moderate” levels in parts of the Midland-Odessa and Lubbock areas should burning continue.

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