Keep Those Tissues Handy: Miserable Day Ahead for Allergy Sufferers

    Dave Price's forecast for May 21. 

    (Published Sunday, May 21, 2017)

    Achoo! Although the weather has cleared up into a perfect, sunny spring day, many will have trouble enjoying it because of allergies. 

    The tree and grass pollen count are high for the second day in a row, Storm Team 4 says. 

    Not only is the pollen everywhere, but it's being blown around by breezy conditions. 

    Sunday is expected to be cool and breezy with highs in the upper 60s ahead of a damp and gray Monday. Thunderstorms could rumble through the region on Monday.

    The tri-state experienced an official heat wave on Friday, unusual for this early in the year. Lori Bordonaro reports.

    But Storm Team 4 says Tuesday will likely be a perfect spring day with a high of 75 and mostly sunny skies. 

    Looking ahead, the holiday weekend looks to be pleasant with highs in the 70s to near 80 each day. There's a chance of showers or thunderstorms late in the day on Sunday. 

    It should be a welcome reprieve from last week, when the city experienced its first May heat wave in 16 years. 

    It was also the fifth-earliest heat wave in records that date to 1868.

    (There was an April heat wave in 2002, which holds the record for all-time earliest.)
