The pollen count this morning has dropped to 52, its lowest number this month, according to Atlanta Allergy & Asthma.

The relatively low pollen for the area, though actually still considered in the "medium" range on the scale, comes in a week of continued rain.

Oak, pine, sycamore, mulberry and willow are all medium, according to AAA.

Grass and weeds are low, according to the site.

The pollen count over the last seven days has averaged 656.
