**This is the final forecast of the 2015 Ozone Forecast Season. Forecasts will resume on March 31, 2016.**

The Palmetto State remains socked in with abundant tropical moisture on this Tuesday afternoon, so ground level ozone observations are about as low as they get for any time of year. Slight changes occur on Wednesday as a front marches in from the west. Much of the deep layer moisture will transition towards the east, perhaps allowing for a few breaks of sunshine. However, an upper level trough may allow a few showers and storms to pop up within a still moist and unstable environment if sun does break out. Although ozone concentrations should increase slightly, continued moisture will keep concentrations well within GREEN criteria statewide on the last day of ozone season.
