A lot of dust from the Sahara came to Poland. He colored the sunrises and sunsets and now falls to the ground as dirty rain. Dust settles on the windows of cars and plants and forms a layer of dirty orange mud.
Sandstorms across the Sahara have been wild since the end of March. Small grains of sand are carried by the wind and carried hundreds of kilometers away. You have already reached Italy, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Russia.
A few days ago, the dust from the Sahara reached Crete, paralyzing the airport and making the landscape of the island extraordinary. He used to tint orange snow on the Italian ski slopes.
Now there is a dense dust cloud over Poland.
Therefore, the sky was foggy for a few days, and the sunsets and sunrises were more spectacular than usual. This is the effect of refraction of light rays on dust particles from the Sahara. The sky and the clouds took on unusual colors
Due to the atmospheric front that came from south to Poland on Monday and caused heavy rains, we are dealing with another phenomenon related to the dust of the Sahara. It is so-called precipitation. dirty rain. Dust mingled with the clouds of the front and fell to the ground, leaving dirty streaks on windows, cars, plants and even sidewalks.
The rain front is slowly being removed from our land so that we can once again admire the incredible sunsets and sunrises. ̵
Such a dense cloud of Saharan dust has not been handed down to Poland for many years, although experts emphasize that nothing is strange in it. Climate change is making sandstorms more and more across the Sahara
Saharan dust is not harmful to our health. Soon the cloud of sand particles will move from the African desert to the northeast and leave our country.
