Mississippi Skies: Rain, storms could bring some relief from pollen

Published 1:30 am Wednesday, March 8, 2023

It seems like the entire world is yellow from the annual pollen “dusting” across the state. Bees are happy, but allergy sufferers are in misery as the annual event started earlier than normal. That’s no surprise after such a long stretch of record-breaking warm weather.

Some people in state will get some relief from the pollen today as rain and thunderstorms develop from a weak storm system. We don’t anticipate any severe weather, but we are expecting some cooler temperatures for parts of Mississippi.
