Ground level ozone concentrations will likely remain GREEN in all forecast zones on this Monday afternoon. Some patchy low clouds may start the day on Tuesday with abundant low level moisture remaining in place, but high pressure will move in and help decrease moisture content a bit. Much of Tuesday should be partly to mostly sunny with light winds in response to a weak pressure gradient. The airmass should continue to be clean without much of a transport wind factor. However, precursors may increase slightly in the Upstate. This coupled with slightly better ozone production could lead to low CODE YELLOW concentrations in the Upstate. Elsewhere, CODE GREEN concentrations are expected.
