Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" or possibly higher levels on the northeast and north side of the Houston area, on the northwest side of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and in the Tyler-Longview 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.

Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" on the west and northwest side of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and "Moderate" or possibly higher levels on the northeast and north side of the Houston area and in the Tyler-Longview area, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
