"Severe weather patterns can bring higher temperatures, higher pollen levels and increased exposure to mold, resulting in spring allergies that can peak stronger and last longer," said Dr. Bill Berger, a California allergist.
The top 10 worst cities for spring allergies are:
1. Jackson, MS
2. Knoxville, TN
3. Chattanooga, TN
4. McAllen, TX
5. Louisville, KY
6. Wichita, KS
7. Dayton, OH
8. Memphis, TN
9. Oklahoma City, OK
10. Baton Rouge, LA
Residents in the Springfield area won't be alone in suffering worse than normal allergies. The foundation found that residents of Buffalo, NY and Grand Rapids, MI may face more severe cases than they have in years past.
