Snow turns into flurries overnight, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell said. Total snow accumulation is expected between 2 and 4 inches for most, with isolated higher amounts closer to the Interstate 71 corridor. Gusty winds will create blowing and drifting snow overnight. Temperatures will drop in to the lower teens by morning.

Tree pollen staying high this weekend 

Published: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 @ 5:50 AM
Updated: Sunday, April 22, 2018 @ 4:50 PM

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.

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.
