We are in the midst of a new arrival. I am glad that a meteorological event that will cause far fewer havoc than the usual appearance, and plus some great photographs. Being from northern Illinois, I will be lucky to see any of the Saharan Dust Plume here. If it makes it far enough north, around Tonight to Monday will be the slot of time on this plume. If I get any photos, I will temporarily interrupt the featured Florida photos going on right now. There may be more arrivals of plumes before the tropical season arrives in full force later in the summer. If you are in an area where it does make it in your area, gather up the camera gear to try to get some vivid color and interesting photos. I liked the Twitter post from @NWSNashville:
Saharan Dust Plume causes pretty sunsets as sunsets take on more yellow & reddish hues because low-angle sunlight passes thru more of atmosphere before it reaches your eyes. A heavy load of dust can enhance this effect, thus longer-lasting, duskier colors and vivid sunsets.
