Pollen nears record levels (again) Thursday

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Tree pollen is everywhere.

In North Carolina pollen is bad every year, but this year it's particularly bad.

In fact, Southeast Regional Climate Center reported the tree pollen count in Raleigh on Wednesday reached its second highest since 2002--and Tuesday ranked the sixth highest!

Sorry to say, but Thursday isn't going to be much better.

"I think we're going to be right there again today," ABC11 Meteorologist Steve Stewart said. "Incredibly high--the trees almost off the charts here."
