SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Spring doesn’t officially begin until Wednesday, but people throughout the Bay Area with allergies are already suffering.
Dr. James Wolfe, a clinical professor of medicine at Stanford University, said the early start to allergy season does not necessarily mean it will end early. The lack of rain in the Bay Area this winter could be to blame.
“January through April and May, when there’s very little rain actually, is when you have the highest pollen count. That’s what we’ve had in the last few weeks with very high Juniper and Cedar counts making people miserable,” said Wolfe.
