Well more days of sneezing and coughing look to be likely coming up.  Pollen levels continue to stay in the high category, and aren't looking to go anywhere.  The next three days will feature pollen levels above a 10 out of a scale that goes up to 12!

The hope was that some rain on Tuesday could scrub the air clean, and help keep the levels a touch lower.  But now the forecast models indicate that the weather will be mostly dry on Tuesday, so we won't see much relief in site.

Just an FYI, some of the highest allergy days often feature warmer temperatures, lower humidity, and more wind.  This gives the pollen a chance to fly more easily and end up on you, your car, and everything!

The major pollen culprits right now are ash, poplar, birch, juniper, and maple.

Keep that medication handy as those trees/flowers continue to bloom!
