Interested in staying up to date on the pollen count levels in the air? Subscribe to our daily pollen count reports. Just complete the form below.
Pollen count is the measurement of the number of grains of pollen in a cubic meter of air. High pollen counts can sometimes increase allergic reactions for those with allergic disorders. Usually, the counts are announced for specific plants such as grass, ash, or olive. These are tailored to common plants in the measured areas. Mild winters with warmer days lead to an increase in pollen counts while colder winters lead to delayed pollen release. In Atlanta, we recommend constantly monitoring the pollen levels.
This report can help you track your allergy symptoms. If you’re allergic to it, a low count means you can go outside and not have too many symptoms. A high count means you could risk an allergy attack if you don’t stay indoors. Knowing the daily pollen levels can help you plan your day so you can enjoy a jog outside or choose to exercise indoors if you are sensitive to pollen. Consider logging your symptoms to track how you feel during different times of the year or when the pollen count is high. This is useful information for your allergist.
