Still birch pollen in the Nordics – season almost over in rest of Europe
The birch blooms late in the north this year. Spring made an early visit in April, but May has been unusually cold. Still much the south of Scandinavia has seen the peak of birch pollen, as has the British Isles. In Central and Southern Europe, only small amounts of birch pollen remain and in most places the season is over. The hotspot is now Middle Scandinavia, notably in Sweden and Norway, as well as the Baltic countries.
The front continues northwards
The next ten days central parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland can expect high birch pollen levels. Major spread further north will probably be delayed into June, as the snow hopefully will finally melt in the northernmost regions.
