The northern and central regions of the continent will have, at least until Thursday, high and very high concentrations of pollen in the atmosphere, according to the Portuguese Society of Allergology and Clinical Immunology (SPAIC).

For the Madeira archipelago low levels of pollen are expected in the atmosphere and high levels in the Azores.

In the Lisbon and Setúbal region, pollens are found at moderate levels, with a predominance of grass and parietary herbs, and the eucalyptus tree.
In Porto (Between Douro and Minho region), pollens are at very high levels, especially grass and parietaria herbs and the chestnut tree.
