Bay Area to experience worst allergy season in more than a decade

Bay Area

If you’re starting to feel allergies already, it’s only expected to get worse. 

Doctors say it will be the most intense for people in Contra Costa County. 

The entire Bay Area will experience the worst allergies in the last 15 years because of all the rain the area has received in the last couple years. 

Landscapes endured through drought conditions, and with all the recent precipitation, there is new growth, causing allergy symptoms to be stronger than usual. 

We spoke with an allergist who says the worst is yet to come. 

It’s expected to peak sometime around Mother’s Day. 

The allergist also warned people who experience allergies to take your medications starting now and to continue to take them as symptoms arise.
