Spring seems to be getting underway thanks to warmer temperatures this week.

Warmer and now dry weather means allergy season is about to amp up.

Have you been feeling stuffy? Maybe your eyes have been watering?

It could be allergies!

“It will go an episode everything will be fine, next thing you know I have to sneeze a lot,” said Robert Boloski of Springfield. “I went to go see the doctor I go and get Flonase and that solved the problem.”

According to a national pollen website, over the next couple of days, the allergy forecast for western Massachusetts is medium to high.

Temperatures are expected to finally warm up especially as we head into the weekend, with high temperatures potentially getting up near 70 degrees, and very little rain in the forecast from Wednesday to Saturday.

The perfect weather for your allergies to act up is dry and warm weather. When it rains it helps take the pollen out of the air and helps to give you relief.

The main allergens are maple, juniper, and alder.

If you are looking for some ways to help relieve your allergies, you can always change your clothes as you walk into your home so you are not bringing pollen in with you.

And we are expecting that warm up to begin Thursday.
