High - Pollen levels between 91 and 1,500 will likely cause symptoms for many individuals who suffer from allergies to the predominant pollen types of the season.

Very High - Pollen levels > 1,500 tend to affect most individuals who suffer from the pollen types of the season. Symptoms may become more severe during days with high pollen levels.

Moderate - Pollen levels between 6 and 20 tend to start affecting individuals extremely sensitive to the predominant pollen.

High - Pollen levels between 21 and 200 will likely cause symptoms for many individuals who suffer from allergies to the predominant pollen types of the season.

High - Pollen levels between 35 and 86 will likely cause symptoms for many individuals who suffer from allergies to the predominant pollen types of the season.

Very High - Pollen levels > 86 tend to affect most individuals who suffer from the pollen types of the season. Symptoms may become more severe during days with high pollen levels

Mold Spores:

Low - Pollen levels between 0 and 900 tend to affect very few individuals among the allergy-suffering public.

Moderate - Pollen levels between 901 and 2,500 tend to start affecting individuals extremely sensitive to the predominant pollen.

High - Pollen levels between 2,501 and 25,000 will likely cause symptoms for many individuals who suffer from allergies to the predominant pollen types of the season.

Very High - Pollen levels > 25,000 tend to affect most individuals who suffer from the pollen types of the season. Symptoms may become more severe during days with high pollen levels
