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.

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.
