Some experts predict 'pollen superburst' this year
March 14, 2007 (WLS) -- Since we're getting an early taste of spring, May allergy sufferers are already wondering how bad the up coming season will be.
The official start is just eight days away. The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology says there is no way to accurately predict pollen counts or how bad the spring allergy season will be .
But some experts think we may be facing a "pollen superburst" this year. Pollen usually happens in a sequence. Trees first, then flowers and weeds. Cold weather slowed things this year, but with recent warm-ups, trees and flowers could start pollinating all at once.
