BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Pollen counts should be lower Wednesday after an allergy-sufferer's worst nightmare on Tuesday.

A backdoor cold front blew in from the ocean on Tuesday, kicking up a massive and fast-moving cloud of yellow-green dust that alarmed drivers and observers on local highways.

The plume was so big that it was visible on Doppler radar and stretched about 60 miles from Worcester to New Bedford. The cold front dropped temperatures in Boston by 20 degrees in just ten minutes

Pine tree pollen was the main culprit. Accuweather Meteorologist Dean DeVore told WBZ NewsRadio that a sizable improvement in the pollen should come Wednesday because of showers that are set to roll through the area.

WBZ's James Rojas (@JamesRojasNews) spoke to people on the streets of Boston about the pollen situation.
