Winds may be light enough for the daily PM2.5 AQI to reach the lower end of the "Moderate" range in the Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and El Paso areas, with highest concentrations in the morning and evening. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and/or low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
