A headline in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution caught my eye:
It may be peak cold and flu season, but Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said there could be another reason you’re running for the tissues this week.
Temperatures in the 70s across North Georgia have caused pollen counts to rise and symptoms for allergy sufferers to flare, Deon said. On Monday, the pollen count was at zero. On Tuesday, it jumped to a moderate 64, according to the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma group.
We're used to sudden warm spells in the south, and we normally will get a cold snap right around Easter, but I am definitely seeing more spring-like activity and a lot of folks are complaining about .
How do you prepare for the spring when it comes earlier than usual? Does spring pollen trigger your allergies or asthma? Have you experienced an early and sudden spring?
