Ground-level ozone is trending toward peaks in the code GREEN range across the forecast zones on this Monday afternoon. A weak cool front will settle into the state from the NW tonight and continue to slowly work its way through SC on Tuesday. The front, along with a humid atmosphere, will increase cloud cover and bring a good chance of showers and thunderstorms to most areas. That along with relatively clean upstream sourcing leads to a code GREEN forecast for Tuesday, except in the Upstate, where slightly drier air may allow ozone levels to reach low code YELLOW.
