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)

Forecast Discussion: ****OZONE ACTION DAY ON SUNDAY FOR UPSTATE & CATAWBA**** Ozone readings on this Saturday afternoon are trending toward CODE ORANGE in the Catawba zone, with peaks of CODE YELLOW in the Upstate zone. The other zones should remain at CODE GREEN. On Monday, a high pressure system to our north and the subsidence enhanced by Tropical Storm Humberto should bring northeasterly winds and dry conditions over portions of northern South Carolina. This should support good urban pluming that should enhance the impacts of ground-level ozone over portions of the Catawba and Upstate zones. As such, ozone levels are expected to build into, and maybe exceed, today's peaks. So the forecast for Monday will feature an OZONE ACTION DAY FOR THE UPSTATE AND CATAWBA ZONES, where CODE ORANGE ozone conditions are possible. CODE YELLOW conditions are expected for the Midlands zone and the Pee Dee, Trident and Central Savannah River Area zones should be at CODE GREEN for Monday.
