In addition to spring, we are also facing a very special weather phenomenon: Saharan dust straight from North Africa. © www.de24.news

 The  beach is coming to town!

“Anyone who finds some sand on their car paintwork today and in the coming days shouldn’t be surprised. That is the Sahara sand or its sand particles. With the onset of the strong south-westerly current from North Africa, the Sahara dust comes to us permanently, and that for the whole week, ”explains qualified meteorologist Dominik Jung from the Q.met weather service.

Climatologist Dr. Karsten Brandt from Donerwetter.de explains: “© www.de24.news

 The  sky color changes from blue to milky, sometimes gray. Together with some cirrus and cirrostratus clouds at a height of seven to nine kilometers, it already looks like the sun is shining through a frosted glass. ”

Hoch Ilonka and Tief Christopher are pumping spring to us. On Monday the maximum values ​​rise to 13 to 20 degrees, there is a lot of sunshine, but especially in the west there are also a few cloudy hours due to the Saharan dust.

 The  sunrises and sunsets in particular will be very colorful because there are more particles in the air that the solar radiation can break on,” says Jürgen Schmidt, a graduate meteorologist from WetterKontor.

Weather expert Jung: “Tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday the sunny and warm weather will continue. However, the Sahara dust continues to cloud the sky in some cases. Clouds form on the small dust particles, moisture accumulates on the dust and thin cloud fields are created. ”

 The  plumes will very likely extend from southern Europe to Scandinavia and will have a major impact on air quality, especially in Spain, France and probably in Great Britain, Germany and the Benelux countries. © www.de24.news

 The  high amounts of dust can have health consequences for the respiratory tract of everyone in the affected regions and, in addition to local air pollution, contribute to increased particulate matter, ”said Nuria Lopez, spokeswoman for the Copernicus Earth observation program.

How long the heat will last cannot be said today. Weather expert Jung: “© www.de24.news

 The  weather is six to eight weeks ahead of its time. And that only a few days after the extremely cold winter week. “
