Discussion

Friday 03/27/15
Moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.

Saturday 03/28/15
Moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.

Sunday 03/29/15 Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America may begin increasing in South Texas in the afternoon and evening, but probably not 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.

Monday 03/30/15 Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should continue in South Texas and could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI into the "Moderate" range in the Brownsville-McAllen area. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.

Tuesday 03/31/15 Extended Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America in South Texas should spread northward along the coast and Rio Grande and could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI into the "Moderate" range in the Brownsville-McAllen, Laredo, and Corpus Christi areas. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
