Allergy sufferers in Nevada are already seeing the first signs of spring allergy season.

Pollen levels have already started inching up at both ends of the state, even though Reno is still seeing snow and Las Vegas has been cold.

“Pollens can start up here as early as the end of January, with juniper,” said Dr. Leonard Shapiro, an allergist who opened his Reno practice in 1974.

The season typically peaks starting in mid-March and plants pollinate until the temperature reaches the high 90s.
