Tree pollen, mold spores causing issues for allergy sufferers 

Published: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 @ 5:50 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini looks at how the pollen count will change this week.

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. 

Rain on Wednesday and cool temperatures can allow our tree pollen to briefly dip and the mold spore count to briefly climb. 

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.
