The grand climax of our Crop Over Festival. The revelers are "jumping" along the streets creating a dust storm along the way.
It will be nothing compared to the Sahara Dust air layer that is headed our way.
Our yearly baptism of dust direct from the African coast.
Some of the dust has already drifted past our island chain, hence we had a few "overcast" days last week.
Everything will be coated in dust for weeks. Out come the inhalers and masks, and down go the asthmatics and respiratory sufferers.
Image from MeteosatAs can be seen from the updated satellite image above, it is a massive area of dust.
The continent of Africa on the right and the Caribbean islands and South America on the left .
Once it gets caught up in the North East trade winds, there will be no escape.
No where to run, no where to hide.
At least it's not the awful Sargassum Sea seaweed that invaded the island a few years ago. See here and here.
