Allergy suffers will see drop in pollen count, but worse to come

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) –  If you suffer from allergies, you might have a love hate relationship with spring.

Could the coming cold snap ease your pain? Experts say don’t hold your breath on that.

Allergy counts continue to increase as the weather warms up. Lab technicians from Allergy Associates of La Crosse say the pollen count increased nearly 10 fold since Friday.

They say while the cold will help lower pollen counts, but don’t expect a big break.

“I don’t think it will end the season though,” Medical Lab Technician Tony Kavanaugh said. “I don’t think it will get cold enough to do that, but it could be the end of elm season.”

Kavanaugh says following the cold snap, it won’t be good for those with allergies, because that’s when birch and oak pollen season begins. He calls those the worst pollen for allergies.
