PHOENIX - Stuffy noses, endless sneezing and watering eyes...any of that sound all too familiar? 

ABC15 asked an expert as to why this allergy season has been so severe and seemingly longer than normal.

Doctor David Mendelson is an Otolaryngologist at Tempe St. Luke's Hospital and Mountain Vista Medical Center. He explained that our state's weird weather from hot to cold, along with a year-round growing season is a recipe for disaster when it comes to allergy suffering. 

The good news is that Dr. Mendelson said the heat will help. When temperatures are consistently above 100 degrees, that kills off some of those allergens.
