— 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.

— 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.

— It’s been a pretty cold month so far, as we’ve had a number of mornings below freezing and snow.
Data from the National Weather Service backs that up. Records indicate that if the month were to end on April 20, it would in fact be the coldest April on record for the Dayton area.
The coldest April in history occurred in 1950, when the average temperature was just 45 degrees. As of April 20, 2018, the average temperature is 43.2 degrees. That’s almost a whole 2 degrees below the coldest.
However, that average temperature is certain to rise as we round out the month. We’ll be back in the mid-60s by Monday, and long range models indicate we likely will see highs stay in the 60s for the rest of the month.
