Fukuoka City began providing pollen forecasts on its website on Feb. 6. The city responded to citizens’ requests and added a pollen section to the web page where PM 2.5 and yellow dust forecasts are posted. Cedar and cypress pollen levels will be forecasted in six levels: not yet in the air, low, medium, high, very high, and season almost ended. The forecast will be updated twice a day until the end of the pollen season. This year, pollen levels in Fukuoka Prefecture are expected to be slightly higher than the average. Source: Fukuoka City
