Forecast Discussion: Sunny skies and a light northwest wind is allowing ozone to climb on this Wednesday afternoon, but the clean airmass in place should keep most locations in the upper reaches of the GREEN category. More sunny skies and mild temperatures is on tap for Thursday as surface high pressure moves offshore the Carolinas. A weak return flow from a southeasterly direction will begin as a result of this high pressure moving offshore. Weak re-circulation of the relatively clean airmass should lead to a few low CODE YELLOW ozone readings across the interior portions of the state. However, Catawba and Trident will likely remain in the GREEN category.
