Pollen forecast for Met Éireann
Forecast Date: 24-06-2019
Pollen Type: Grass
L = Low
M = Moderate
H = High
VH = Very high
N/A = Not available
Very high pollen risk during warm, dry and sunny weather. Thunderstorms from Sunday into Monday and Tuesday will bring the risk of thunderstorm asthma so please be prepared. This is caused by an increase in allergens in the air ahead of the storm but there is also a risk from certain spores during warm and humid weather. Grass, weed and fungal spores are the allergens currently airborne.
The tree pollen risk is currently low. Lime tree pollen will be airborne later in June.
Most grasses are now in flower and emitting plenty of pollen on warm, dry days. The risk will be high to very high when temperatures are in the high teens or above.
Nettle, dock and plantain will be airborne in significant amounts, with a high risk on warm, dry sunny days.
There is a risk of high spores ahead of thunderstorms and during warm, humid conditions. Specifically, sporobolomyces, didymella and tilletiopsis, which can all cause asthma. Cladosporium will be high on warm, dry and sunny days with some Alternaria too.
