I’ve been hearing a lot of complaints about the pollen in the last 2 weeks… and, guess what, it is warranted!! Conditions here in southern New England are some of the worst in the country this week as oak, birch and grasses are producing pollen at a steady pace. Here’s the pollen forecast for the next few days.
Weather, of course, plays a roll in the amount of allergens in the air. While rainfall can cleanse the air… the relief doesn’t usually last long as the rain promotes more plant growth and thus more allergen release. A windy day is also good at stirring up allergens. Mowing the lawn can stir up allergens. For people who suffer from allergies, the best advice is to stay inside on high allergen days and invest in an air purifier.
