Pollen to decrease with rain, but allergy season far from over

Warm temperatures have brought the onset of sneezing and watery eyes to allergy sufferers. So how are pollen levels this week?

According to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, pollen levels are moderate.

Tree pollen continues to stay the highest. That's usually the case in the spring with grass and weed pollen going up in the summer and fall.
