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)
Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.

Forecast Discussion: Ground level ozone concentrations will likely remain green (good) on this rather sunny and seasonably warm Memorial Day to this point. An upper level impulse will slide through late this afternoon and early evening, energizing the atmosphere enough for thunderstorm development, with some severe storms possible. A couple of weak frontal boundaries will reside just north of the Palmetto State on Tuesday. With so much moisture convergence across the Deep South continuing to enhance moisture into the Carolinas, mostly cloudy skies are anticipated throughout Tuesday morning. This should delay ozone response due to lack of ozone making sunshine. This delay, continued clean sourcing, and another chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon hours should allow CODE GREEN ozone conditions to continue across the entire state on Tuesday.
