All regions are currently trending toward code green on this Sunday. For Monday, a chance for precipitation in the eastern 2/3 of South Carolina means that moisture will be dominating those regions and bring clouds to help reduce ozone formation. The Upstate region will likely see more sun and less moisture, which will allow for better ozone production conditions. Winds will probably be light for the western half of the state while the eastern half should see a stronger southeasterly wind. Thus, dispersion of pollutants will be greater the closer one gets to the coast. A relatively clean atmosphere to start out with should also help keep all regions CODE GREEN.
