Pollen levels creeping upward

March 08, 2012|By Scott Dance

The Sun’s weather page in print and online don’t show it quite yet, but spring allergy season has begun.

Moderate mold levels have been reported for the past week. Low levels of cedar, maple and elm tree pollen are present and beginning to creep up.

Tree pollen typically peaks in mid-April and lasts through early August. Grass pollen doesn’t begin until late May.

The fact that many flowering trees are already blooming around the region is probably not a good sign for allergy sufferers.
