Predominant Pollen: Grass, Mulberry and Hickory/Pecan
The amount of pollen in the air for Saturday will be rising in the moderate range. The cause for the rising pollen levels is strong winds and decreasing humidity. This heavy increase in pollen concentration could very well cause problems for those who are allergic to airborne pollens.
Based on past pollen counts and expected weather conditions, pollen levels for Friday will be falling into the extremely low range. This lowering of pollen concentrations is a result of falling temperatures, rising humidity, and heavy rains in the morning and evening which tend to wash pollen out of the air.
Many people believe that mowing their lawn prevents it from going to seed and therefore reduces the amount of pollen the grass plants produce. Unfortunately, the reproductive organ of several species of grass plants are low to the ground and escape the mower's blade. This ensures a continuous source of pollen right outside your window.
