Wetter autumn and winter months typically translates to a more severe allergy season come spring. When there’s a lot of precipitation in the fall and winter, pollen-producing trees can produce more pollen come spring. Warmer weather starts the pollen production earlier, so a warmer winter usually means an earlier allergy season. As the weather turns drier and warmer, allergy sufferers feel it even more.

That being said, rain in the spring typically brings some relief from pollen allergy sufferers, as rain stops pollen from traveling in the air. Last year, allergists predicted a severe allergy season, or “pollen vortex,” as a result of the polar vortex that happened in winter. It turned out to be a pretty typical allergy season, though.

So, just how severe allergy season will be, when it will start, and how long it will last is difficult to predict.

If you live in a flat, rural area with lots of trees, you can generally expect allergies to be worse than if you live by the coast, in the mountains, or in a city. If you suffer from allergies, check out our tips and tricks for taming allergies.
