Pollen count keeps rising

by Staff Reports

The pollen count in Coweta County continues to rise.

This morning, the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic website reports the pollen count at 4,151, the highest-mark of 2013. Pollens creating the 'Extremely High' range are oak, birch, sweetgum and mulberry trees.

The 4,151 mark is still far short of last year's high. The highest pollen count recorded a year ago was 9,367 in mid-March.

Some relief may be on the way for the area as the National Weather Service has forecast a 70 percent chance of showers and possible thunderstorms for Thursday and 100 percent chance later that night.
