Discussion

Monday 03/02/15
Moderate winds, heavy cloud cover, and/or low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.

Tuesday 03/03/15
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should increase in South Texas but the duration and intensity may not be enough to raise the daily PM2.5 AQI beyond the "Good" range. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.

Wednesday 03/04/15 Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should continue in parts of South Texas and could possibly raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to the low end of the "Moderate" range in the Brownsville-McAllen area. Elsewhere in the state, moderate to strong winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.

Thursday 03/05/15 Outlook
Moderate to strong winds, cold temperatures, and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.
