Allergy Forecasting And Weather
If you suffer from allergies, you know that the severity of your allergies can vary depending upon the season and weather conditions in your particular location. You may want to know in advance how much allergy medication you will need or what locations to avoid and an allergy forecast can assist you. An allergy forecast predicts future pollen levels for an area by identifying patterns in historical pollen indexes and current pollen reports. To determine an accurate allergy forecast, weather is analyzed, including winter weather conditions, freeze dates, and rain conditions. According to Pollen.com, a late freeze can delay tree pollination, producing lower pollen counts. Rain can reduce the pollen count by washing pollen from the air, thereby providing relief for allergy sufferers. Although sometimes rain can cause an adverse effect: rain in late fall or winter can increase tree pollination amounts, causing higher pollen levels. Increased rain in spring makes grass grow faster to produce more unwanted pollen.
