I used to live on the East Coast (CT), and now live on the West Coast (WA). Both places, I get allergy symptoms in late August - what could it be?

Having lived on both coasts, one common feature is that I develop allergy symptoms in August / September, lasting two to three weeks. Predicting what's going on would be useful.
How do I find out what specific pollens, etc. are currently in the air? The pollen websites that I have looked at just tell me our area is low for allergens at the moment, but don't point towards specific plants, etc. that may be dispersing pollen.
Allergy tests tell me I am allergic to a whole host of things, but the reality is I only get symptoms twice a year - and I'd like to be able to The timing of second half of August, year after year, does point towards a specific allergy, methinks.
