HAY FEVER SUFFERING
Millions of British hay fever sufferers were hit this week when storms and downpours ignited a pollen bomb.
Large quantities of tree pollen will circulate throughout the country, especially in the south.
Rain is expected in the UK in the next few days, and the Met Office will remind people that today, not only high temperatures can cause a sharp rise in pollen levels.
Pollen levels can be high even after rain, experts said, explaining: “During a thunderstorm … high humidity can crack the pollen grains, releasing a higher density of pollen into the surrounding air.
“Any rain causes a noticeable decrease in the concentration of pollen in the air, but the timing and amount of rain during the day is very important.
“Early, heavy and prolonged rain is likely to keep scores low throughout the day, while rain during the day will have less of an impact.”
