Hazel and alder in the air: the spring weather is only half as nice for allergy sufferers


Published

Sunshine, warm temperatures – and then your nose starts to itch and your eyes turn red: Hazel and alder allergy sufferers are currently particularly suffering due to the high pollen count. And the next week doesn’t bring any improvement either.

  • Temperatures are currently very mild in Switzerland.

  • These also bring a lot of pollen.

  • Hazel and alder in particular are currently causing problems for allergy sufferers.

Allergy sufferers who sat on the balcony today to enjoy the beautiful spring weather may have experienced a nasty surprise: itchy nose and reddened eyes. The reason for this is the strong pollen count.

Hazel and alder are currently particularly active. “These are always the first bushes to start blooming,” explains Reto Vögeli from “Meteo News”. They began to bloom as early as the beginning of February, when the weather became a little milder.

However, there has only been a high concentration of this pollen since last week. For allergy sufferers, however, it is nothing new that it starts so early. “That is absolutely according to plan,” said Vögeli.

Temperatures rise to 18 degrees

Next week, too, the pollen count is unlikely to stop: a lot of sunshine and mild temperatures can still be expected. According to Meteo Switzerland, there should be a lot of sun. The days start in the morning with a little fog in the lowlands and temperatures around freezing point. In the course of the day it gets warmer and temperatures between 14 and 18 degrees are expected in addition to a lot of sun.
