— December 3 will not only be our next full moon, it is also considered to be a "supermoon."
A supermoon is a full or new moon that occurs around the same time it is near the closest approach to Earth during orbit, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. This point is called the perigee. December's supermoon is actually the only full supermoon of 2017.

In Dayton, the moon will technically be full around 10:46 a.m. Don't worry though, when the moon rises around 5:43 p.m. it will look huge!
A "supermoon" is said to appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than a full moon when it is furthest from Earth, although it is usually hard to notice with a naked eye.

— This time of year if you notice your allergy symptoms, it is likely because of a toss-up between tree pollen or the mold spores, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
Tree pollen is what typically spikes in April and May. Mold spores, during a wet time of year, also can be high. This time of year we can get low amounts of grass pollen in the air as well.
This weekend, sunshine and warm, breezy conditions will allow the tree pollen to climb quickly, while dry weather will allow the mold spores to drop.
If you suffer from spring allergies, you likely will notice your symptoms this weekend.
