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.

The Lyrids peaks this weekend! Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini talks about where and when to look.

Dry and pleasant weather returns just in time for the Lyrid Meteor Shower this weekend, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.

The meteor shower peaks before dawn Sunday. The waxing crescent moon will have set around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, meaning the sky will be darker to watch for meteors. Grab a blanket and go outside Saturday night/Sunday morning!

The Lyrids usually produce 10 to 20 meteors per hour, but can have outbursts which produce around 100. The radiant point, which is the point where the meteors look to come from of the Lyrid shower, is the constellation Lyra. 

Give yourself 30 minutes outside to let your eyes adjust to the darkness and enjoy the show! You also might see some meteors before dawn on Saturday and Monday.
