Have you had allergies lately? How about since the beginning of April? Well you might have a break from them this weekend!

According to Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, the culprit of nose and eye allergies across the region is finally expected to back down for awhile. As the weekend nears, the pollen count is expected to drop down to low percentages by Sunday, something we haven't seen in over a month.

Since April 1st, the pollen count hasn't been lower than moderate in the region with three days being considered "very high" pollen count days and one considered "moderate".
