Forecast Discussion: We should see all zones finish at Code Green for ground-level ozone for this Friday afternoon. A backdoor cold front should move into the Palmetto State from the northeast on Saturday and stall over the state. The front should stretch from the GSP area, down to near Columbia, and be just north of Charleston before it stalls, as a ridge to our west in the Deep South builds eastward, slowing down the front's southwestward movement. Ozone readings are relatively clean today, but we may see some elevated readings with prevailing westerly winds ahead of the front. Winds behind the front should be more northerly in direction. With the clean readings today and no anticipation for any ramp-ups in ozone concentrations at the beginning of the weekend, we should see another day of Code Green for all zones on Saturday.
