Allergy sufferers will want to grab some tissues this week — the pollen count for tree and grass is forecast to be very high for the area Tuesday through Thursday, according to Weather.com.
What's the problem? As temperatures continue to stay in the 50s and 60s, trees and grass believe it's early spring and are blooming, leading to the high grass and tree pollen count.
Specialists say the best way to avoid allergy problems is to remain indoors and to run an air-conditioner. Or, hope for rain, which will wash away much of the pollen.
Rain is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, which might help. The chance of rain is 20 percent. Sun will return on Thursday.
