POLLEN COUNT FOR YEAR 2017
Pollen count for 2017 begins today. This year we predict about 2 weeks delay comparing to the pollen count done in previous years.
Springtime is one of pollen seasons for allergy sufferers.
Weather has significant effects on pollen release. The most pollen will be released on warm, dry, sunny, and windy days. Allergy symptoms may be more bothersome on these days.
Cold temperature and high humidity delay pollen release, and rainfall cleans the pollen out of the air.
During February, cold wintery weather is common, and this will shut down pollen release.
Pollen count will be posted daily between 2:30pm – 3:30pm
