Attack of the spring allergies!
For those who suffer from hay fever or spring allergies, the pollen count is at the highest yet of the season, and it is going to keep increasing as trees bud.
Wednesday, the pollen count was low, only at a 4.4. What this means is that there are 4.4 grains of pollen floating in every one cubic foot of air. As the pollen count increases, that means more pollen per cubic foot.
You can imagine how this impacts those suffering from allergies. The higher the pollen count, the worse the itchy eyes, scratchy throat, runny or stuffy nose gets!
Pollen increases especially from certain types of weather. Watch out for your allergies when nights are cool but days are warm, windy days, during the morning or midday and after it rains.
As we go throughout this week and the daytime temperatures start warming again, pollen counts will start to increase. The allergy forecast will be moderate through the end of the week.
