Mist of sand: be careful it comes back


There is a significant area of ​​sand mist to the east of our islands.

Since yesterday the mist of sand had faded and this morning the weather was clear as usual.

Unfortunately the satellite photos tell us that a new important area of ​​sand mist is heading towards the West Indian arc.

According to our estimates we should be in "fog" again this afternoon.
