Forecast Discussion

*”Tuesday 07/03/2018 “*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” or possibly higher on the north side of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and “Moderate” in parts of the El Paso area, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

At least light amounts of Africa dust will continue across the majority of the state generally along and east of a line from Presidio to Kermit, with a second wave of more intense dust arriving along the coast and pushing inland into at least South and Central Texas over the course of the day. Overall, the daily PM2.5 AQI is expected to reach the middle and upper end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Beaumont-Port Arthur, Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, Houston, Laredo, and Victoria areas; low to mid-“Moderate” in parts of the Amarillo, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Lubbock, San Antonio, Tyler-Longview, and Waco-Killeen areas; and the upper end of the “Good” range across most of the El Paso and Midland-Odessa areas.
