The Metro Atlanta Pollen Count continues to be in the Extremely High Range for the  7th straight day.

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma says today’s count is 2,482 with tree pollens – oak, pine, sycamore, mulberry and sweet gum – as the top contributors. Weeds (Sheep Sorrel) and Mold are in the Moderate Range and Grass is in the Low Range.

The last time the Pollen Count remained in the Extremely High Range for at least 7 straight days was March 26-April 1, 2020. That 7-day span last year also contained the high mark for 2020 at 8,918 on March 29.

Last year, the Pollen Count reached 1,000-or-more a total of 19 times. So far in 2021, the Pollen Count has been above 1,000 only 8 times.

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.
