There is no easy way to predict tomorrow’s pollen activity. Our advice is to look at which direction the current winds are coming from, and then check the certified pollen counting stations in those directions – generally this means stations in Tulsa Oklahoma and Rogers Arkansas.

Pollen is a fine powder made by some reproducing plants. It is released into the air during the spring, summer, and fall and is carried by the wind. Inside pollen are proteins that often cause people who breathe them in to have allergic reactions, like sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes. Pollen from grasses, trees and weeds are most often the ones responsible for causing allergies.

The pollen count is available every Monday through Friday starting in February or March, and ends after the first heavy frost.
