Dry Conditions Bringing Out the Pollen

Pollen Report 

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) -  After five days in a row of sunshine and beautiful conditions, we had to “deal with” some cloudiness yesterday but the rain stayed away.

Today, it’s back to the sunshine and beautiful conditions. However, the nice weather comes at a price.

This time of year, with sunshine and warm temperatures, comes high levels of pollen.

The main culprit this time of year is tree pollen, but grass pollen is on the rise too.

It looks as though pollen levels will stay very high through the next several days since there is no meaningful rain in the forecast.

Enjoy the nice weather but be sure to have your favorite antihistamine handy.
