The Finger Lakes region is currently experiencing a severe spring allergy season, with grass and tree pollen peaking at the same time.
She noted that the region is at the height of its transition from spring to summer allergy season.
Dr. Weis attributed the higher pollen levels to unpredictable weather transitions from winter to spring.
The concurrent pollination of tree and grass, which usually are spaced out, is causing people to struggle with allergy symptoms. Although it is unclear whether the situation will improve or worsen, Dr. Weis suggests being prepared and reaching out to healthcare providers for treatment if symptoms persist.
