We may have a rough allergy season at the Jersey Shore, and it looks like the winter that just wouldn't let go is to blame.

The slowly ending winter means pollination is slow to start, and therefore so is the onset of allergy season. But that's not necessarily good news for Jersey Shore residents, according to accuweather.com.

The lingering cold could push the start of the allergy season to as late as June, but when it finally hits, experts say it will likely hit hard. We are also expecting stormy weather, which is good news because it knocks the pollen down, but bad news because it will create conditions that will allow more to grow.

The forecast for our allergy season is that it will start anywhere from early May to early June and allergens will range between moderate and high. You can check the allergy forecast map here.
