Tree pollen will cause problems this weekend for allergy sufferers.
Early in the week, the tree pollen count was low, but warm and dry weather has allowed the count to spike, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
Friday: Tree pollen will stay elevated because of warm and breezy conditions
Saturday & Sunday: Rain will likely drop the count by the end of the weekend.
Mold spores may climb this weekend due to wet weather expected.
How can you get relief from the pollen in the air?
- Close windows at night
- Limit your time outdoors between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.
- Shower before going to bed so don't sleep in pollen
