Tree pollen staying high this weekend

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini talks about the pollen counts this weekend.

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.

WHIO Weather App

Tree pollen is what typically spikes in April and May. Mold spores, during a wet time of year, can also be high. This time of year we can also get low amounts of grass pollen in the air as well.

Friday through Sunday, sunshine, warm temperatures and breezy conditions will allow the tree pollen to climb quickly. Dry weather can allow the mold spores to drop. 

If you suffer from allergies, you will likely notice your symptoms this weekend.
