Record high 2016 pollen count today

5 habits that make allergies worse

ATLANTA -- The pollen count has been in the extremely high range for most of Spring. While yesterday had the lowest count of the season at 120, today has the highest--4107.

Tree pollen is extremely high, grass pollen is high and pollen from weeds is lower.

Most of the pollen is coming from trees: Oak, Pine, Sweet Gum, Hackberry, and Sycamore. Grass pollens are in the medium range. Nettle weed pollen is also present, but only in low quantities. 

Nearing the end of March, we've racked up nine of those extremely high pollen days. In March 2015, there was only one for the entire month.
