African dust with “Moderate” fine particulate levels is covering much of South, Central, and North Central Texas and eastern portions of West Texas. Dust levels should diminish along the coast this afternoon and evening. If there is enough afternoon sunshine, winds may be light enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” or possibly higher levels in the El Paso area with highest concentrations this afternoon and into the early evening. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the “Good” range.

If there is enough afternoon sunshine, winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach “Moderate” levels in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, in parts of Northeast Texas, and in the El Paso area with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening. African dust may continue over parts of South and Central Texas and could possibly raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to “Moderate” levels in portions of this area. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the “Good” range.
