AQI: Good (0 - 50) AQI: Good (0 - 50)
Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
AQI: Moderate (51 - 100) AQI: Moderate (51 - 100)
Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150) AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (101 - 150)
Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200) AQI: Unhealthy (151 - 200)
Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 AQI:Very Unhealthy (201 - 300) AQI: Very Unhealthy (201 - 300)
Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects.
AQI: Hazardous(301 - 500) AQI: Hazardous (301 - 500)

Forecast Discussion: We are trending in the green category statewide this Wednesday afternoon in South Carolina. A front should move through from northwest to southeast Thursday. Winds should pick up, allowing for better precursor pollutant dispersion, thus limiting ground-level ozone production. The air we will be sourcing Thursday is on the clean side, limiting ground-level ozone levels. The aforementioned front will dry us out a bit however, allowing for mostly clear afternoon skies. The pros outweigh the cons in this situation, resulting in an expectation for CODE GREEN conditions statewide on Thursday.
