New pollen forecasts available online

Pollen allergies can have a serious impact on people’s well being.

19 April 2011 - Pollen forecasts are now available on the Met Office website for the millions of sufferers of hay fever across the UK.

The forecasts will use our latest weather forecast information and combine this with pollen readings from across the UK.

UK Pollen Network Manager at the Met Office, Yolanda Clewlow said: "Variable weather conditions across the country mean that levels of pollen often vary greatly from day to day, so it's important the hay fever sufferer stay up to date with the latest forecast."

The introduction of the pollen forecast is part of the wide range of weather-related services offered by the Met Office, which also include UV index and Heat Health watch.

Met Office forecasters will be working closely with the University of Worcester and Pollen UK throughout the season.
