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 ].

*”Wednesday 09/20/2017″*
Light amounts of patchy blowing dust generated yesterday over the White Sands area of New Mexico could move into parts of the Panhandle and Permian Basin, resulting in brief increases in particulate levels during the day and possibly raising the overall daily PM2.5 and/or PM10 to the lower end of the “Moderate” range primarily in isolated parts of the Midland-Odessa area.

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 statewide.

*”Thursday 09/21/2017″*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Light amounts of patchy blowing dust, aided by moderately strong afternoon winds that could generate additional dust, may linger over parts of the Panhandle, resulting in brief increases in particulate levels during the day and possibly raising the overall daily PM2.5 and/or PM10 to the lower end of the “Moderate” range primarily in isolated parts of the Lubbock area.

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

*”Friday 09/22/2017 Outlook”*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, 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 09/23/2017 Outlook”*
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth and Waco-Killeen areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening. A slight increase in urban fine particulate background levels along with sufficient local add-on may also be enough to raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to the lower end of the “Moderate” range in parts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area as well.

Elevated winds could generate and transport light amounts of blowing dust primarily into parts of the Permian Basin, possibly raising the overall daily PM2.5 and/or PM10 AQI to the lower end of the “Moderate” range in isolated parts the Midland-Odessa area.

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