Tuesday’s forecast does not contain good news for allergy sufferers. Another day of a high humidity and even higher temperatures coupled with high levels of tree pollen- particularly for oak, birch and maple trees- means itchy, watery eyes and irritated noses will be the norm… Dr. Leonard Bielory, with Rutgers University, told the Associated Press said the tree season that started late due to the overbearing winter is expected to release one of the strongest birch and oak pollen seasons in recent memory… He said the spring allergy season, caused primarily by tree pollination, typically begins in late February or early March. But this year, it did not start in earnest until early April. That means even mild sufferers could be affected during the first few weeks of May.
