GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The mild winter we've had so far has been a nice break for those who have to shovel and for those who dislike bitterly cold temperatures. However, seasonal allergy sufferers could start dealing with pollen a lot earlier than the last two winters.

If the mild weather pattern continues into early spring, tree pollen may increase sooner than it usually does. Doctors say before you seek treatment, however, it's best to get tested and evaluated to make sure your symptoms are consistent with allergies instead of an infection or some other cause.

    Meteorologists can’t accurately predict what it is going to do tomorrow afternoon in Michigan. Fox has no business trying to make predictions on what the weather-dependent allergy season is going to do a month or two from now. This is garbage filler, not even worthy of being called “fluff”.
