Moderate winds, cool temperatures, and/or low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range statewide.

Tuesday 01/24/2017
Patchy smoke from agricultural and industrial burning in Mexico and Central America may return to South Texas, with the daily PM2.5 AQI forecast to reach the "Moderate" range in the Brownsville-McAllen and Laredo areas.

Strong afternoon winds could generate and transport patchy blowing dust into parts of West Texas and the Panhandle, with the daily PM10 AQI possibly reaching "Moderate" levels in parts of the El Paso and Lubbock areas and the upper end of the "Good" range in the Amarillo and Midland-Odessa areas.

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