You can usually "see" when mountain cedar will cause allergy problems. The male trees will develop pollen and it is clearly visible. These trees will have a brown tint to them that stands out in contrast to the other trees right next to them.

Hasn't happened yet.

I can't breathe through my nose at ALL today, even after taking a claritan. It's something for sure. Hope it's not cedar already.

I started feeling it on Sunday. It's not too bad for me yet, though. As the previous poster mentioned, you can usually see the trees changing, but that's only really noticeable when it's beginning to peak. There are always some early bloomers, which are harder to spot. I think that's what's starting to happen.

In San Antonio, the Mountain Cedar count went up from 200 on Monday to 4200 yesterday. The winds associated with that cold front shook loose a bunch of pollen.

These pollen buds are visible on the trees in SW Austin. Hopefully the drought has starved them some. This cold snap will probably bring out the pollen.

This is the first allergy count I have seen this year that showed Cedar. It is now medium and I felt the difference.

It has been present for about a week and a half now, alternating between low and medium (which is really a crapshoot because the counts can/do change throughout the day) which is precisely as long as I've been suffering. Valentine's Day can't get here fast enough.

Whatever it is, I woke up with it this morning. Idlewile's link seems to indicate Molds. However, my daily pollen reports shows the following...

Today's allergy levels for central Texas
Saturday - 8/Medium-High

Today's predominant pollen:
Cedar/Juniper.
