General Comments:
There will be a high grass pollen risk during warm, dry weather. However, showers and bands of rain will reduce the risk to low. Weed pollen and fungal spores will also be airborne.
Tree Comments:
The tree pollen season has finished and the risk is now over.
Grass Comments:
The grass pollen season is now well underway with a high to very high risk expected during warm, dry and sunny conditions.
Weed Comments:
Allergenic weeds are now in flower, including nettle, plantain and dock. These trigger symptoms in around 20% of hay fever sufferers.
Spore Comments:
Fungal spores that are dispersed during warm weather will now be in the air in moderate amounts, including Cladosporium and Alternaria. Those types that require high humidity will be high at times: Didymella, Sporobolomyces and Tilletiopsis. The last three types are most prevalent during warm, humid nights.
