Allergies affect an estimated 10% of Americans, not including those with asthma. Residents of Texas are particularly affected by allergies—in fact, some of Texas’s most famous cities, such as Austin and Dallas, rank among the top worst for allergy sufferers in the nation! So if you feel like you’re allergic to Texas, you’re not alone. That said, when is allergy season in Texas? Well, some times of the year are worse for allergy sufferers than others. Here’s everything you need to know about allergy seasons in Texas.
Spring is a common time for allergies nationwide. As nature bursts forth in the form of flowers, trees and weeds, so does pollen. In Texas, oak pollen is the worst spring offender, followed by ash, elm, pecan, and cottonwood pollen. These trees and other plants contribute to allergic reactions that are sometimes called “hay fever.” Certain parts of Texas also have agricultural and industrial waste to deal with—smoke from large-scale agricultural burning and other ventures may worsen allergies.
The free national and local pollen count service offered by Pollen.com enables you to not only see what the pollen count is throughout the nation, but also provides you with a 5-day forecast for your area. At a glance you’ll be able to see “Today’s Worst Cities” for pollen allergies, as well as “Today’s Best Cities”. It also gives you the opportunity to sign up for the 2-day allergy alert emailservice.
Allergy forecast information could be easily obtained from the Pollen.com allergy service by clicking on the map, selecting a state or entering a ZIP code. A 5-day allergy forecast will be provided that details the predominant pollens in the area and what to expect for much of the week ahead.
