The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has ranked the top 100 cities for fall allergies in 2012. The top five are:

1. Louisville, KY
2. Wichita, KS
3. Knoxville, TN
4. Jackson, MS
5. McAllen, TX

Knoxville is down to number three after ranking first last year. Memphis is ranked eighth, Chattanooga 11th and Nashville is 36th on the list. The rankings are based on scientific analysis of "pollen scores (airborne grass/tree/weed pollen and mold spores), number of allergy medications used per patient, and mumber of allergy specialists per patient."
