The combination of thunderstorms and high levels of pollen will create a weather “thunderstorm” for millions of people this week as remnants of a tropical storm move inward.
Hurricane Alex, a former tornado that swept through South Florida, will sweep across the Atlantic to Britain in the next few days.
Unusually strong winds, which forecasters can reach speeds of up to 55 miles per hour, “thunderstorms” with high temperatures and high levels of pollen, have caused warnings for those suffering from hay fever.
Air allergen expert Max Weisberg told the Daily Star: “In case of this good weather, thunderstorms are forecast, which can cause problems for those suffering from hay fever.
“High levels of pollen are forecast in many parts of England from Thursday, which will cause great harm to millions of people suffering from hay fever in the UK.
“Predicted thunderstorms will not delay, as they could cause a phenomenon called ‘thunderstorm fever’.”
Thunderstorm fever is an extreme grass fever.
The medical term for herbal fever is allergic rhinitis. It is manifested when our immune system mistakenly perceives airborne particles, such as pollen, as a harmful pathogen that usually causes inflammation of the airways, the high level of which causes constant sneezing and watery eyes.
Mr. Weisberg, the creator of the HayMax allergen barrier balm, said: “According to the European Respiratory Theory, moisture splits dust particles into smaller allergenic particles.
These new powders turn into a kind of ‘super dust’, which is probably more allergenic than regular pollen, which causes more severe reactions in patients.
“Storms bring down grains of dust that would otherwise have risen from the height of the head without causing damage, collecting dust grains near the ground and mushroom spores.”
“Traces of the former hurricane are likely to graze in the north-west of the UK on Thursday-Friday. “In the north of the United Kingdom, on some of the missing Northwest Islands, coastal areas are likely to have speeds of up to 55 mph.”
Weekends seem to be a more mixed business, equal to the amount of rain in the UK.
