A simple formula, intended to serve as an aid for the prevention of allergies, is proposed for forecasting the starting date of the grass pollination season in Switzerland. Parameters are daily mean air temperature and rainfall. The forecast is accurate in two thirds of the cases, and too early in one third, but still useful in practice.
