You’re not imagining the sudden yellowish tint to windows, cars and anything left outside for a few minutes. Pollen counts spiked Sunday and Monday, thanks to warmer weather that has moved into the state and triggered the release of tree pollen.
Officials say they measured a record high pollen count of 9,369 particles of pollen per cubic meter Tuesday. That shattered the previous record of 8,164 set Monday. This week's pollen counts are well above the old record of 6,013, which dates to April 12, 1999.
