Forecast Discussion

*”Monday 11/05/2018 “*
Winds may be light enough and/or incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach the upper end of the “Good” range in parts of the Houston area, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Strong afternoon and evening winds could generate and transport patchy blowing dust into portions of West Texas and the South Plains, possibly raising the daily PM10 AQI to “Moderate” levels in parts of the El Paso, Lubbock, and Midland-Odessa areas. Associated PM2.5 levels could also reach the upper end of the “Good” range in the affected areas.

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