Allergy Season 2015: Will 'Pollen Vortex' Strike?

By    |   Friday, 10 Apr 2015 02:43 PM

Will the spring allergy season bring another “pollen vortex” strike?

That’s the concern allergy specialists in many regions of the country who are bracing for a more severe spring allergy season in the wake of a record-breaking winter, ABC News reports.

Manhattan allergist Cliff Bassett, M.D., notes the "pollen vortex" isn't a scientific term, but he believes that wet winters lead to more pollen worse allergy seasons.

"Whenever you have a fall and winter with a lot of precipitation like we had in received in most places, the soil is moist," said Bassett, causing plants to produce more pollen in the spring and summer.

In addition, a late spring also results in what Bassett calls a "pollen tsunami" as a variety of pollen kicks in all at once.

"May is the new April, June is the new May," he said. "Allergy misery is just around the corner."
