Weather: BIG and INSISTANT load of SAHARA SAND on ITALY! REGIONS BLURRED until WEEKEND
Incoming sand from the Sahara desertA big and insists load of sand, coming directly from the heart of the Sahara desert, will affect a large part of Italy also in next days, blurring the skies with color yellow e rosso, in a sometimes surreal atmosphere. Well, according to the latest updates, this particular phenomenon will continue to reiterate at least until weekend.
Are you going to wash the car? Maybe it will be better to postpone for a few more days. Let’s go into the details of this event, to tell the truth not so rare, to identify the timing and, above all, what will be the areas most at risk.
The baric configuration of the next few days, which sees the depression between France and the UK and the African anticyclonic promontory on Italy, will be the basis of a constant call of currents directly from the Sahara desert.
This immense atmospheric gear will favor the arrival of large quantities of pulviscolo desértico that will concentrate in suspension at the highest altitudes of the atmosphere, ready to reach our country after a long journey.
At least until next weekend so let’s wait loaded skies from desert sand, hazy, milky or yellowish (in some cases even reddish, especially near sunrise and sunset).
What are the most at-risk areas? To tell the truth almost all of them, but in particular, as can be seen from the SKIRON map (University of Athens) that we report below, Sardinia, Sicily, Puglia, Lazio, Marche e Campania. However, it will be especially during the precipitation that the dust will tend to fall back to the ground and settle on every surface, dirtying a little bit of everything, from our window sills, to garden furniture, to cars: that’s why the phenomenon, in terms of practical consequences, it will be more evident in the North, where precipitation will be much more likely over the next few days than in the rest of the country.
