Grass pollen

We will report on the 2018 grass seaon when grass levels start to rise in late April. Counts represent the average number of grass pollen grains per cubic metre of air for the period covering 9am on the date shown to 9am the following day. Counts are converted to a classification according to the table further down this page.
