Giant Plumes Of Dust From The Sahara Desert Are Heading To The US And Will Change Louisiana Weather Patterns

A massive cloud of dust from the Saharan Desert is making its way over the Atlantic right now, and it could potentially reach the United States in a few days. While that sounds a little intimidating, it’s actually not that uncommon and happens pretty regularly this time of year. The plume comes with some perks, like a reduced chance for a hurricane to form and maybe even some spectacular sunsets. Let’s take a closer look.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
