The fall allergy season is beginning here in southeast Texas. Last week the weed pollen count came up from none/low to medium.  It's the usual suspects of Amaranth and Ragweed on the rise.  We also noticed the mold spore count rise from low to medium.

I expect more changes in the pollen count next week.  A tropical storm is expected to form in the Gulf of Mexico this holiday weekend.  If it moves northeast into Louisiana we will get a dry northerly flow and the Ragweed and Amaranth count should go up.

If it moves in south of us, we get rain and that would bring up the mold spore count.  Stay tuned!
