If you’ve noticed an abnormal amount of a yellowish-green substance appearing on your car recently, it’s to be expected. According to Bay News 9, University of South Florida Health Professor, Dr. Richard Lockey reports that the infiltration of tree pollen is currently at an all-time high.

Apparently it all has to do with the unusually cold winter we’ve experienced this year. “All the trees held off to pollinate until the weather got warm,” Dr. Lockey explains. “Then suddenly they all pollinated at one time.”

“Right now we have 3,600 pound particles per cubic meter in the air. That’s tremendous,” he tells Bay News 9. “You only need 10 to get symptoms for people to have mild allergies.”

Many people who don’t typically experience an allergic reaction to pollen are having a different reaction this year.

Although the season for pollen fall runs through May, Dr. Lockey reports that the worst of it should be gone by month’s end.
