Saharan dust influences weather patterns
A meteorological phenomenon is imminent: Saharan dust will influence the atmosphere over Central Europe in the coming days. From Wednesday, lows over the central Mediterranean region will channel mineral-rich dust into the higher air layers over Austria. In this article, we shed light on the effects of Saharan dust and how you may be able to recognize it directly or indirectly.
Low pressure over the central Mediterranean leads the way: on the eastern flank of these lows, Saharan dust from North Africa first reaches Italy and then increasingly moves over Greece and the Balkans towards Central Europe from Friday.

Direct and indirect effects in the sky
So far, the dust has gone unnoticed on the ground, but if you look closely at the sky, you can already see indirect effects. At higher concentrations, the twilight colors sometimes intensify. During the day, even if the sky is occasionally clear of clouds, the sunshine can become significantly hazy, especially on Thursday.

Saharan dust influences cloud formations
The influence of Saharan dust is not limited to the higher layers of air. Thin, high cloud layers immediately become denser and more impermeable when the dust passes through them.
Dust trails on the ground, and the so-called blood rain
Perhaps the Saharan dust will still show up on the ground. Light rain could wash the dust out of the atmosphere and fall as so-called blood rain. The best observation opportunities are on cars, where the dust can be clearly visible.

The second half of the week, therefore, promises not only meteorological peculiarities in the sky but also potential effects on everyday life that are worth closely following.
