Pollen.com gives allergy sufferers 28-day forecast

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. — Pollen.com and Weather Trends International last month teamed together on a new forecast tool for allergy sufferers: a 28-day weather forecast by zip code to help people with allergies better plan when pollen levels are likely to be high in their area.

“We have worked with Weather Trends for the past eight years and have found their short- and long-term weather forecasts to be the most reliable in the industry,” stated Gerry Kress, founder of SDI Health, the company behind Pollen.com. “Warm and sunny days in spring and late summer are typically bad for tree, grass and weed pollens, while damp days bring out the mold spores.”

USA Today has recognized Pollen.com as the most popular allergy portal on the Internet, and Forbes ranked Weather Trends International as fifth on its list of America’s most promising companies.
