Re: Website for pollen forecasts

Is this a particularly strong pollen year? I've never had it before but for the last 4 or so weeks have had streaming nose, itchy eyes and sneezing.

Appreciate the websites warning me to bring tonnes of tissues out with me!

Not only strong, but also a little earlier than normal due to the warm, dry weather we've been having. I normally have a miserable April/May, but actually not been so bad this year, despite a tap-like nose for a few days. Maybe I'm gradually getting desensitized.

Re: Website for pollen forecasts

In Bern yesterday it was like 'death by pollen'. I left the window open for a few hours and there was a layer of of the yellow stuff everywhere. Never seen it that bad before. Anyone else notice?

I really appreciate the pollen level forecast map on this site, but it's pretty fraggin difficult to see where anything is. I would have thought a few major landmarks wouldn't go astray. Otherwise it's just a orange, red, yellow fractal with black lines that may or may not be borders.....

PS - I always recommend start dosing with the antihistamines beginning of May. If the Easter forcast is anything to go by, I'd start next week or two - I am. Good luck this season.

I highly recommend this one. Installed because my son started getting annual allergies, and I wanted to pin point the culprit (I did, it's birch trees... Good I don't live in Finland anymore...).

I would think it depends on what your allergic of. People allergic to hasel pollen, for instance, will probably do so in February and March.

Re: Website for pollen forecasts

Maybe I'm speaking too soon, but my hayfever is yet to kick in, despite birch pollen (I believe to be the prime suspect) being high to very high at the moment. I'm either a) very lucky (see above), b) becoming de-sensitised, or c) it was never birch in the first place.

Anyone else?

Don't know if this is the case in your area, but we have had either showers or snow every second day. So even though birch trees are trying to shed their sexuality onto our faces, the pollen gets quickly deposited on the ground. That's been helping the family members.

We've been having quite a dry spell recently, apart from yesterday, but that was our first rain for over a week. Birch is still "high" according to Bern and Neuchatel monitoring.

Oops! Should have read further before replying.

Yep, it’s been dry for days and days except for yesterday and the birch is still high here.

I’ve never suffered from allergies before but last year and now this year I have had very itchy eyes at this time of year which I am attributing to the birch pollen.

Re: Website for pollen forecasts

Just wanted to acknowledge that the pollen website referred to in the old posts on this thread, is still working and that the first grass pollen of the season is expected in the next few days.
