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