A lot of Central Texans have been complaining about their allergies acting up more than ever before this year and the way things are looking, you might be suffering for awhile.

According to KXAN, Cedar pollen counts are at a record high this year, the second most all-time since the mid 1990's. The cedar allergy season typically picks up in late December, and can last until March. The combination of cold fronts sweeping in and out of the area along with a lack of rain could lead this being a very rough season for allergy sufferers. Dry, windy weather often causes cedar pollen to jump, while rain can help lower the concentrations.

So keep the tissues and medications close because this could be a very long season for everyone!
