Sahara Desert Dust Brings Haze to Texas


By Tim Heller – Texas (KTRK) [Check out Video Below]
The sky over the Texas may be hazy this weekend. Dust from the Sahara Desert in north Africa is blowing this direction, carried by winds in the upper atmosphere.

A fresh plume of dust will create a milky, hazy sky during the day. Some of the dust could settle into the lower atmosphere.

People who have respiratory issues and are sensitive to dust might want to avoid spending prolonged periods of time outdoors this weekend until the plume of dust clears out on Monday.

There is a benefit to the dry, dusty air — it keeps hurricanes from developing!
