Aug. 14 -

Afternoon clouds limited ozone production in the Paso del Norte today compared to the weekend. Peak hourly ozone concentrations were in the low 60s ppb this afternoon.
The air quality index forecast is calling for moderate levels (yellow) in the Paso del Norte on Wednesday.
The haze that has been lingering around the borderland for the past few days has moved out of the region. The haze that appears to have been a mixture of regional and long range transported haze from distant wildfires is more located to our north today. Below is the NOAA HMS smoke product showing the haze as the white areas and active fires as red dots.
