Springtime in Wyoming brings not only muddy conditions, but for some, it’s also the sneezin’ season. Tree pollen counts have been in the “high” category in areas below the snow line since last week. Maples, poplars and junipers are the main culprits. Dr. Amanda Staudt, climate scientist with the National Wildlife Federation, says the mild winter means spring allergies will play out longer than usual. Staudt predicts the situation could be even worse for those with fall allergies. She says the conditions are ripe for a record crop of ragweed, a common allergen, later in the year.
