Modelling in aerobiology makes pollination forecasts based on data of the previous years and on the weather forecasts of the days to come. These forecasts are not based on data recorded previous days/weeks. Modelling allows to get an overview of what to expect for the days to come, even if these forecasts are not 100% reliable. The following links are only for guidance.

Forecast for ragweed polllination:
Through its measurement network and forecasting model, RNSA informs of the arrival of the first pollen grains. To date, and given the weather conditions that have prevailed since the beginning of the year, the model gives the date of 3rd of August for the occurence of the first symptoms related to ragweed pollen on the Lyonnais region. These dates can be advanced from 3 to 4 days in the south of Lyon (Rhône Valley), and delayed from 2 to 3 days in the North of Lyon (Nivernais, in particular).
