Limited to no pollen pollutants today.
Allergy and Pollen Calendar
Below is a detailed monthly outline of what kinds of pollen are in the atmosphere. Trees and plants release their pollens at different times through the year, sometime for several months. Pollen can often cause Allergic Rhinitis, commonly known as Hay Fever which can have symptoms like an itchy throat, eyes or nose, sneezing, runny eyes or nose, and blocked nose.

Most pollens are usually emitted in the morning between 5.00am and 10.00am and are more noticeable on windy or dry days. When the day temperatures start to drop in the evenings, pollen which has been floating around during the day begins to drop to the ground causing a secondary onset of allergens.

Tips For Reducing Pollen Exposure
  • Stay indoors until after midday, particularly in the pollen season and on windy days.
  • Avoid going out just before, during, or after thunderstorms. Particularly when pollen counts are high.
  • While out, wear sunglasses, carry tissues and (if needed) rinse your eyes with water.
  • Shower in the evenings to remove any pollen buildup on the skin and hair.
  • Do not mow grass and stay inside when it is being mown. If mowing is unavoidable, wear a mask or take a non-drowsy antihistamine.
  • Keep windows closed at home and in the car. Use recirculating air conditioning in the car.
  • Do not picnic in parks or in the country during the pollen season.
  • Try to plan holidays out of the pollen season or holiday at the seaside.
  • Keep your home clear of dust, mold and allergens such as pet dander.
