Rain dust with Sahara sand could fall today and tomorrow in Romania


A cyclone in the Atlantic that lifted sand from Sahara desert brought the precipitation in western and south-western Europe over the past few days and could be present in Romania as well, today and tomorrow. Its sole effect is getting the cars and houses windows muddy, reads a press release from the National Meteorology Administration (ANM). Its executive director Florinela Georgescu explained for Mediafax that it is about a cyclone in Atlantic which came upon Western Europe and by its whirl, counterclockwise, dragged Sahara sand with it. As any cyclone, the phenomenon brought sand on the continent, dropping the dust carried with it. Such precipitations brought by cyclone, along with amounts of sand from the Sahara, were reported in Romania in early April last year, and two years ago as well, said Georgescu.
Besides, after the unusually high temperatures of late, ANM forecasts colder weather, even by 11 degrees lower than today’s maximum temperature of 23 degrees.
