Wow, how interesting this may be next week! The sunsets may be a bit extra in the next week or so in the southern parts of the United States.

The dust is blowing right now and apparently, according to one meteorologist in North Carolina the dust 'acts like a sponge' will dry the air and be carried all the way across the Atlantic and to the United States.

States like Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolina's will see the effects. According to "Known as the Saharan Air Layer (SAL), this dry dust plume commonly forms from late spring through early fall and moves into the tropical Atlantic Ocean every three to five days, according to NOAA's Hurricane Research Division (HRD)."
