Atlanta Pollen Record
March 21, 2012 by staff
Atlanta Pollen Record, Atlanta’s pollen count Wednesday, while still extremely high, was barely half of Tuesday’s record-shattering mark, and weather forecasters are offering up a good chance of air-cleansing showers by week’s end. The count early Wednesday was 5,174 particles of pollen per cubic meter of air. Tuesday’s record count was 9,369.
The major pollens present Wednesday were Birch, Mulberry, Oak and Pine, according to the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic.
Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said that while the chance of rain is only 20 percent on Wednesday and 30 percent Thursday, that chance jumps to 60 percent on Friday.
Minton is predicting afternoon highs near 80 degrees on Wednesday and in the upper 70s the remainder of the week, with overnight lows around 60.
Tuesday’s high of 83 marked the seventh straight day of temperatures in the 80s, setting a new record for consecutive March days in the 80s.
