The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has rated the air quality index for the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria region as “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” meaning that Thursday is classified as an Ozone Action Day.

The commission recommends that active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.

The forecasts for other regions in Texas are either good or moderate.
