Central Savannah and Pee Dee are trending toward code yellow on this Saturday while all other regions are currently trending toward code green. For Sunday, South Carolina can expect very similar conditions to today, which means the difference in ozone will likely be minimal. The airmass boundary currently draped across the southeast will continue to drift around making ozone forecasting dependent on the exact location of the boundary. Therefore, Midlands, Upstate, Central Savannah, and Pee Dee regions will likely be CODE YELLOW while Catawba and Trident regions should be CODE GREEN.
