Ozone monitors are trending toward peaks in the code GREEN range across the Palmetto State on this Sunday afternoon. A cold front will enter the Upstate on Monday morning and slowly work its way toward the coast by Monday night/Tuesday morning. As such, the Upstate and Catawba zones should remain dry and warm during the day while the other four forecast zones to the south and east will still be quite hot with a slight chance of a shower or storm. Although there could be some pooling of ozone precursor pollutants along/ahead of the front, the airmass should be well mixed with winds gusting at times and upstream source areas remain quite clean. Thus, look for blanket code GREEN conditions across South Carolina again on Monday.
