If you have allergies, you may want to limit your time outside today.

Right now the metro area is under a "very high alert" for grass pollen.

High levels like the ones we're seeing can cause severe reactions.

We've got your back with ways to combat allergies.

1: Try to stay in filtered air and replace your air conditioning filters often.

2: Wash your hands after every time you go outside because pollen can stick to them.

3: Nasal sprays can help relieve some of your symptoms.

4: If you have to do yard work, make sure you wear a dust mask.
