Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" or possibly higher on the north and northwest side of the Houston area and "Moderate" in the Dallas-Fort, El Paso, and Tyler-Longview areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and/or lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
