Temperatures are currently very mild in Switzerland.
The se 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. “
The se are always the first bushes to start blooming,” explains Reto Vögeli from “Meteo News”.
The y 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.
