DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — It may be winter in North Texas, but we’re seeing pollen counts that, in some areas, resemble springtime. Dallas had the highest pollen count in the country on Monday, which is not a good sign of things to come.

KRLD’s Melanie Brown spoke with Dr. Stephen Apaliski with Allergy and Asthma Centers in Arlington about the current pollen counts and what we can expect heading into spring.
