How has the Sahara Dust been over the past few weeks? Noticeable?
Dusty, Dusty, Dusty!
Plus, the result is that we haven't really gotten any good rain since mid Feb. I'm even getting allergies and had to buy water, first time, ever! North side dry as a bone, no lush green grass, flamboyants not all flowering and my elephant ear plants withering on the vine.
We need some rain. A substantial amount.
You may need new glasses, OT.
I hate dirty windows and rinsed truck off yesterday and so dusty again, today.
Maybe you're in pocket that may get more of the little rain we've had but grass around where is like I've never seen before in this location. The pond at top of hill is extremely low for the farmers. Pray for a good dousing with no wind related issues.
Don't believe I need any newer glasses than those I recently purchased and know the difference between "regular" dry weather dust and Sahara dust which casts a pall over the local skies and is very gritty in nature. I checked the NOAA site which makes no mention of Sahara dust in the USVI at this time. 😀
Storm Carib also has a radar image that shows the Sahara Dust.
It has thinned out a little but was showing thicker coverage the last 2 days.
Scroll down to the middle of this page:
The monthly 2015 precipitation amounts for the VI on the NOAA website are truly sad.
When I flew into STX last year during Sahara dust I could see it floating in large pockets on the ocean.
