How You Can Track Pollen Counts in The Spring

Updated: Mar 17, 2021

If you're an allergy sufferer like me, Spring is one of the worst times of the years. Itchy eyes, running nose, and non-stop coughing are enough to drive you crazy, making it tempting sit inside your house until the first winter freeze. Unfortunately, because of our long winter, this year promises to be the worst allergy season in a long time. When allergy season hits, you shouldn't leave your house before you do two things. First, check the daily pollen counts and second, medicate yourself to minimize your misery. There are many apps out there to help you check the allergy forecast and pollen counts, but these are the best.

1. WeatherBug. For years, I absolutely hated this app. It was annoying and it had all of the symptoms of malware. I'm happy to report that Weatherbug has cleaned up it's act and has created a very useful app. It's an excellent source for hourly, daily and weekly allergy reports which let you know which allergy triggers are high.
