Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" in the El Paso area and the lower end of the "Moderate" range in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, 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.

Monday 06/27/2016 Outlook
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" in the Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, and San Antonio areas and the lower end of the "Moderate" range in the Beaumont-Port Arthur and Houston areas, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening.

Increasing background levels associated with building continental haze combined with sufficient local add-on could be enough for the daily PM2.5 AQI to possibly reach the lower end of the "Moderate" range in the Houston area as well.

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

Tuesday 06/28/2016 Extended Outlook
Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" or possibly higher in the Dallas-Fort Worth area; "Moderate" in the El Paso area; and the lower end of the "Moderate" range in the Beaumont-Port Arthur, Houston, and San Antonio 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.
