Discussion

Tuesday 07/07/15
African dust will continue over the eastern two-thirds of the state along and east of a line from Sanderson to Sweetwater to Wichita Falls and should raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to "Moderate" levels in most of this area. Smoke from forest fires in Canada has entered the Panhandle and should raise the daily PM2.5 AQI to "Moderate" or possibly higher levels across much of the Panhandle today. Elsewhere in the remainder of far West Texas, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
