Allergy sufferers can blame the unseasonably warm weather for some recent record-breaking pollen levels.  Accuweather.com is reporting very high levels across the nation as trees bloom two to three weeks earlier than usual.  Atlanta hit a new record this week with a pollen count of nearly 94-hundred when the average count this time of year is around three-thousand.  Allergists across the country reportedly are seeing a big increase in patients seeking relief from sneezing and runny noses.  Weather.com reports the top city this year for spring allergies is Knoxville, Tennessee, followed by McAllen, Texas and Louisville, Kentucky.  Jackson, Mississippi and Wichita, Kansas round out the top five.
