For those of you interested in last year's thunderstorm asthma event, the Inspector-General for Emergency Management has released his preliminary report, which you can download here.
Thanks for your support and interest in our work over the past season. The Melbourne Pollen Count is over for now but we will be back, bigger and better than ever in spring 2017.
The grass pollen season is now well and truly over as we haven't recorded anything but low since the moderate we saw on January 4. Hay fever symptoms, reported through the survey available on our app, also haven't topped 2 (very mild symptoms) in quite a while.
So we've decided to bring our sevice to a close and to stop counting. Our last count will be on January 31.
I'll put up a summary of the past season, what we saw, what you told us and how all this compares to other seasons, in the next week or so.
Thanks for all your support over the past few months and look out for us again later in the year.
