You Might Not Like These Predictions About Wisconsin’s Upcoming Peak Allergy Season
They might have started playing baseball already, but it’s probably a bit early yet to say spring has sprung here in Wisconsin. We all know better and assume there’s a chance for a least one more snow. With the late start to the worst of winter this year, we’re likely to get a late start to spring and that’s bad news for folks who suffer from allergies.
When cold weather pushes spring back a bit, all the things that release allergens into the air – the pollinators – all bloom at once. Instead of having early pollinators, followed by mid-spring and late-spring bloomers, they all release their pollen at once, making it miserable for those who suffer from seasonal allergies. It doesn’t help that Madison is already on a number of lists for worst places for allergy sufferers. It turns out Wisconsin is just not a great place to be in spring if you have an aversion to pollen, ragweed and other sneeze-inducing spring friends.
