Pollen Levels

The following table shows the risk level* for each type of pollen. Severity of pollen is dictated by the PPM (Pollen Grains Per Cubic Meter) number.
The weather and time of the day can also be a big factor when it comes to how pollen count can affect you. As pollen falls to the ground when the heat dissipates during the evening, your seasonal allergy symptoms could get worse. This is why many allergy sufferers have worse symptoms at night. On rain days, vou might find your allergy symptoms are easier to manage as the rain tends to wash the pollen away.

*Derived by applying NAB guidelines to our data and taking percentile values from the extended season for each type of pollen.

Pollen Calendar

Weed pollen boosts pollen levels in April through May, but drops off toward the end of spring. Even though pollen from grass still picks up around this time, pollen counts typically stay lower from June to January. That said, if you want to keep seasonal allergies at bay during the months with high pollen counts, you might want to stay indoors, steer clear of parks and grassy areas, and have allergy relief at the ready.
