In brief: Late reaction
Some people with allergies will have a delayed reaction a few hours after exposure, in addition to the immediate reaction.

In brief: Delayed reaction
If it is truly a pollen allergy and you have high exposure through the day, you may be experiencing a delayed reaction to the earlier exposure.
This often occurs 6-8 hours after allergen exposure and causes similar symptoms as the immediate reaction.
