Winds may be light enough and incoming background levels high enough for ozone to reach "Moderate" or possibly higher levels on the north side of the Dallas-Fort Worth area and in Tyler-Longview and El Paso areas, and "Moderate" levels on the north and northwest side of the Houston area and in the Beaumont-Port Arthur area, with highest concentrations in the afternoon and early evening. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and lower incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
