Pollen Month-by-Month in Winnipeg

  • January
    With snow covering most of Winnipeg, this month has a low pollen count. Allergies in January are largely due to mold or animals. Having trouble figuring out if you have hay fever and a winter cold? check out our guide to spot the differences!

  • February
    So long as the freezing temperatures continue in Winnipeg, pollen seldom makes its presence felt this early in the year.

  • March
    March welcomes spring and the beginning of tree pollen season. Trees blooming in season are Maples, Hazels, Alders, Elms, Cedars, Willows, Poplars, Oaks and Pines.

  • April
    April showers boost the upcoming grass pollen season with Kentucky grass becoming the first representative of the season. Tree pollen remains the dominant pollen producer in Winnipeg during April.

  • May
    Throughout May Kentucky, Bermuda, Johnson, orchard, and Timothy grasses are spreading their pollen evenly across Winnipeg, while Sycamore trees also begin pollenating.

  • June
    The primary producers of tree pollen in June are pines, birch and oaks. Sweet vernal grass also joins the pollen party in Winnipeg.

  • July
    In July, grass pollen is peaking in Winnipeg, and ragweed begins to appear in Manitoba.

  • August
    The good news is that tree pollen production has peaked with the exception of a few late bloomers. For Winnipeg, ragweed is now the dominant pollen producer, along with dock, nettle, mugwort and plantain.

  • September
    Ragweed is on the decline, which signals that hay fever season is officially winding down. Enjoy a deep breath of fresh air without causing a runny noses or itchy eye, hopefully the sun sticks around to make the most of it!

  • October
    With any luck, the last of the weed pollen is on its way out, although some may hang around until the first frost of winter in Winnipeg.

  • November
    Enjoy the changing leaf colours without your eyes watering: November’s pollen count tends to be low.

  • December
    December brings the first official day of winter in Winnipeg, which means traditionally low levels of pollen for the next few months.
