ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – The pollen count is Georgia is soaring to near-record levels.

Officials say Thursday’s pollen count rose to 8,024 particles of pollen per cubic meter of air.

That is Atlanta’s third-highest number ever.

The newspaper reports that Thursday’s pollen county in Atlanta is eclipsed only by the 8,163 recorded on March 19, 2012 and the record count of 9,367 on March 20, 2012.

The pollen count is expected to drop dramatically later this week, as rain in the forecast is expected to provide some relief.
