Pollen Count Soars

David Kerxton the, “Pollen King”, who counts the number of pollen grains in a cubic meter of air and sends the tally to us here at WBAL-TV each morning, reports that the Thursday morning count was a record for the 12 years he’s been looking at pollen in his microscope. David counted 2,550 grains of pollen in the sample of air he monitored atop the offices of Dr.s Golden, Matz and Rosenberg out in Owings Mills. Most of this was tree pollen with some grass pollen mixed in. If you suffer from pollen allergies, hold on, we are likely to have another very high count on Friday and perhaps Saturday. Relief may come in the form of a cold front moving through Saturday evening, which should be able to produce a few showers to wash out the atmosphere.
