Allergies and rain

I live in Massachusetts and I have noticed that when it rains, my allergies are really, really bad. Does anyone know what you would be allergic to if it happens when it rains? Thanks

Re: Allergies and rain

There are a couple of recent studies that show that mold counts go up, not just when it's raining or afterward, but immediately before storms as well. I don't know how valid they are. Some folks are also very sensitive to changes in barometric pressure and will experience symptoms for this reason.

Also, dust mites thrive in high humidity, so that's another possibility.
