Situation and medium-term forecast
The pollen season is fading!
Ragweed pollen will only cause low burden in locations with large ragweed population like Burgenland, Vienna, Lower Austria, Styria, parts of Upper Austria and Carinthia.
Other pollen types are only registered at our monitoring stations in such low concentrations that the threshold for causing allergenic burden will not be reached.
Remark: Please pay attention to the small (about 3 mm long) and serrated seeds, if you remove ragweed now. The seeds are easily dispersed and germinable for a long time. Consult our hints for removal.
The pollen season has ended in the West of Austria.
Yellow sediment could occur due to cedar pollen but is harmless from an allergological point of view.
Fungal spores currently cause mostly low values in the lowlands. The burden may increases rapidly after short showers of rain. The burden from fungal spores decreases with the sea level.
What else: The pollen spectrum contains pollen of nettle and the goosefoot family.
