Grass continues to show  up regularly on clear days..  The grass pollen is full of starch, which makes it heavy.  It generally needs a warmer, breezier, lower humidity day in order for it to get airborne enough  to get into our sample.    We are basically  at  the end of the tree pollen season, and  about three to four   weeks into the grass pollen season.
