General Comments:

Mainly a low risk for the next few days. However, although the main pollen season has yet to start (expected early June), there are some early-flowering grasses emitting pollen so the odd sneeze or sniffle can be expected on warmer, dry days.

Tree Comments:

The tree pollen risk has now decreased to low.

Grass Comments:

A few early-flowering types of grass will emit pollen on warm, dry days, triggering symptoms in some sufferers. The risk will rise to moderate in lowland areas with grassy meadows during days with temperatures in the high teens or above. The main season for grass pollen is likely to start in early June.

Weed Comments:

Weed pollen will be low for now - just a little plantain in flower.

Spore Comments:

Fungal spores will include some Cladosporium and Basidiospores but generally the risk will be low for now.
