Pause to spring has (temporarily) paused allergy season across Michiana

We’re now more than a month into spring, but allergy season really hasn’t started yet across Michiana. 

Local tree and grass pollen counts are low, and ragweed pollen is moderate as of April 23, according to data from the South Bend Clinic.

And it’s not hard to figure out why---spring has basically stopped across Michiana.

The last two weeks have been the 20th coldest on record in South Bend, with the last week coming in as the 6th coldest. 

Our last freeze is likely behind us for most of Michiana, but long-range forecasts continue to show below-normal temperatures for the next few weeks. 

That being said, tree pollen should start to increase across the area as we get into the middle of May.
