HOUSTON — Can rain really help with your allergies.  Sometimes.

There are millions of tiny pollen granules going through the air right now, and up your nose.  But when raindrops fall, some of those pollen granules get stuck in the raindrops, fall on the ground and go into storm drains and it makes allergies not as bad.  

But sometimes if there is just a light rain, some of the raindrops can hit flower petals, causing them to release even more pollen.

KHOU Chief Meteorologist David Paul wants to keep you 'weather smart.'  See some of the other videos he's produced in the playlist below.
