Weather Directly Affects Allergy Symptoms

Most people know about seasonal allergies, which come with different allergen triggers and symptoms. Some seasons have connections, but they are each distinct. Just as seasons affect allergies so does the weather. Do you notice that your eyes water more on windy days, or that your nose is stuffier while it’s raining? Weather is not a trigger, but it can heighten symptoms depending on what triggers your allergy symptoms.

Heat is bad because it allows air pollution to be at its worse. During hot summer days, it is not uncommon to see air quality advisories in cities.

Cold makes it tougher to breathe and can cause coughing fits. These symptoms are more likely to occur when exercising outside.

Dry and windy days can carry pollen for more than 100 miles. Ragweed that is grown in a completely different city than you can be brought to your home when it is windy.

Humid conditions allow for mold to grow, which is bad for allergies. Dust mites are also known to thrive in damp places. Humidity and rain are bad for pollen because it weighs it down to the ground.
