In a recent interview, he said: “As the days grow longer and the sun gets higher in the sky, tree pollen will increase.
“We know Covid is transmitted through the air and the 29 March lifting of restrictions will unfortunately coincide with the start of peak hayfever season.”
Bill added: “We all want to meet family and friends, but watch out for those sneezes!”

Now the roadmap to recovery has been provisionally put into place (subject to change), Bill can get back to talking about what he knows best – the weather.
And as we head into the warmer months of the year, people will depend solely on the weather to give them a new lease of life, what with normality slowly returning and being able to meet friends and family for walks and picnics outside.
“Nearly all the things we are looking forward to doing again as lockdown gradually lifts are dependent on the weather,” he told Radio Times.
He also admitted he’s looking forward to 12 April, when hairdresser and barbers are set to open their doors, as he’s been struggling to enjoy watching weather forecasts as the BBC weather presenters currently look like “shaggy sheepdogs”.
The 81-year-old retired TV forecaster continued: “I don’t know about you, but this will become easier for me to enjoy from 12 April when barbers open again and some of the BBC weather presenters who now look like shaggy sheepdogs will be allowed to have their hair cut.
“Then we’ll be able to see their eyes again and this, I always feel, is a clear indicator as to whether or not they believe the story they are telling you!”

“In my days on screen we were employees of the Meteorological Office, which made us, in effect, servicemen,” he explained.
“Presenting weather reports was like going on parade and we were obliged to have neat, short hair.”
Bill didn’t specify which presenters he was talking about specifically, but the current meteorologists at the BBC include Carol Kirkwood and Ben Rich.
