The Metro Atlanta Pollen Count is once again above 5,000 for the third time this week.

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma reports today’s count at 5,081, the 2nd-highest count of 2021 just behind the 6,947 on Sunday. Tree pollens – pine, oak, sweet gum, hackberry and birch – are the top contributors. Grass is in the Moderate Range while Weeds and Mold are in the Low Range.

It’s the 10th consecutive day the Pollen Count has been in the Extremely High Range and 10th time overall in 2021. Last year, the Pollen Count was in the Extremely High Range 15 days (9 in March and 6 in April).

The record-high for Metro Atlanta is 9,369 set on March 20, 2012.

The Pollen Count is the measurement of the number of pollen grains in a cubic meter of air. The higher the pollen count, more than likely it leads to increased rates of an allergic reaction for folks with allergic disorders.
