Strange dust on cars today


Question

I could be wrong but it's most likely to be pollen, lots of trees are starting to blossom, so it could be that.

I suffer a little with hay fever and my eyes have been playing up today. 

Hopefully we can get a definitive answer from someone with more knowledge, as my car is filthy and was going to wash it, but I will probably hold off for a little while, it's not like  I don't have to time ?

Funny that, I noticed it on a few cars driving past today but just assumed it was unwashed cars, either that, or it’s the same thing that happened to you... pollution levels are low and certainly can’t be Saharan dust so I don’t know

Probably some form of pollen. I was sneezing for 3/4 days straight a couple of days ago and I don't even usually suffer from hayfever!

The ongoing progressive pattern over southern Europe will result in the advection of Saharan dust transport towards France, reaching England and Ireland.
