Even though the pollen count today is Extreme i have no asthma symptoms
in contrast the thunderstorm asthma forecast says Low
so I think that is the best measure for me

I was out cycling today.. no problems
compare this with last Wednesday (15/11) when I experienced difficulties walking around Melb cbd

I tried to find information from DHHS site concerning how thunderstorm asthma risk is determined but could not find anything :(

Phil, we are exactly the same today. Usually I have bad asthma when the pollen peaks and my husband sneezes, today and yesterday nothing, I can’t feel it in the air. I think the extreme pollen prediction wasn’t indicative of what was happening in other parts of Melbourne.
