St. Louis Pollen Levels

Check out the pollen forecast in St. Louis for the next few days. A low pollen count means you can play softball, baseball or soccer on the fields at Carondelet Park or going fishing or playing disc golf at Creve Coeur Park without worrying about allergies. If a pollen count is high, pack Kleenex® On-the-Go tissues, so you can stay prepared for allergies, wherever you are.

During February, March and April, pollen counts can rise higher than the rent of a downtown studio. Then, pollen counts drop significantly in May and remain at lower levels through the rest of the year—even during a small increase in August, September and October, when pollen from weeds slightly raises the pollen count, and January, when tree pollen raises the pollen count a bit as well. Although pollinators are extremely productive for only a few months during the year, you might want to steer clear of parks and grassy areas during those months if you want to keep seasonal allergies at bay. That’s why we put together a list of some seasonal-allergy-friendly activities that help you avoid pollen.

St. Louis Monthly Calendar
