Discussion

Monday 03/30/15
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America may begin increasing in South Texas this 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.

Tuesday 03/31/15
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should cover most of South Texas and could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI into the "Moderate" range in the Brownsville-McAllen, Corpus Christi, and Laredo areas. The smoke should also begin moving into Central and Southeast Texas, but concentrations may not be high 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.

Wednesday 04/01/15 Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should cover much of the eastern two-thirds of the state, mainly along and east of a line from Del Rio to San Angelo to Sweetwater to Vernon, and could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI into the "Moderate" range over much of this area. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.

Thursday 04/02/15 Outlook
Smoke from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America should cover much of the eastern two-thirds of the state, mainly along and east of a line from Del Rio to San Angelo to Abilene to Wichita Falls, and could raise the daily PM2.5 AQI into the "Moderate" range over much of this area. Elsewhere in the state, moderate winds and low incoming background levels should help to keep air quality in the "Good" range.
