Massive Sahara desert dust plume drifting toward the United States


Go Buckeyes
A massive plume of dust from the Sahara desert in northern Africa has been traversing the atmosphere, thousands of feet above the tropical Atlantic Ocean, and is now cloaking the Caribbean and closing in on the southeastern United States.

While summer dust plumes are a common occurrence, this appears to be one of the most extreme in recent memory. It's so large it has been nicknamed the Gorilla Dust Cloud.

After last week consistent winds from the East, now they've been from the west. Water is actually low, for recent times. Pop, crackle, pop might not be too bad this year.
