Dust from Sahara Desert could reach Texas this week

Sahara Dust

A strong jet stream is bringing a large cloud of dry dust from the Sahara Desert across the Atlantic Ocean. The dust cloud is expected to arrive in Southeast, South, and Central Texas this week KENS 5 News reports.

The dust could pose a big problem for sinus sufferers and most people will feel it before they see it. The dust can make for hazy sunsets and you will probably see it on your vehicle. Those who are sensitive to the dust could experience itchy eyes, nose, and throat.

The dust is not a bad thing KENS News reports, and typically signals quiet conditions in the tropics.
