If there is enough afternoon sunshine, winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone levels to reach "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" on the south and southwest side of the Houston area, "Moderate" or possibly higher in the San Antonio and Corpus Christi areas, and "Moderate" in the Austin, Beaumont-Port Arthur, and Victoria areas, with highest concentrations this afternoon and into the early evening. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
