Smoke in Houston

Smoke in Houston this morning from the fires in Magnolia. North to Northeast winds around 5mph moved the smoke along the 59 freeway. Similar to fog, the smoke hugged the ground with the cool temperatures. The smoke will rise as the temperatures warm. (Warm air rises). But if you suffer from asthma or are sensitive to poor air quality stay inside. Ozone watch in effect mostly likely thought the weekend.

  1. Not sure if this is the right place for a question, but…..I live in Spring, zip 77380. I am seeing a smoke plum that appears so close, it makes me curious to ask if there are new fires closer to The Woodlands than the Tri-County fire. What can you say to that? Thank you very much.

  2. Houston constantly has dust or smoke in the air because of continental winds
