June 29, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Another round of Saharan dust is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico later this week. The haze will blanket the Caribbean and Southern states once again, bringing poor air quality as well as the potential for remarkable sunrises and sunsets.

(CNN)Another round of Saharan dust is forecast to move into the Gulf of Mexico later this week.

The dust is expected to improve as it moves across Florida this week, but likely to worsen as it reaches the Texas and Louisiana coasts.

The dust will also remain in place for much of the Caribbean and Mexico.

"The concentration of last week's dust was historic.

This week's dust is much more typical of what we see in any given year," CNN meteorologist Judson Jones says.

Saharan dust travels to the US every year.

The dust can white-out the sky, causing poor air quality, as seen in this before and after photo of Flagler Beach, Florida, last Friday.

This next round of dust isn't expected to be as dense as the previous one, but it will still be bad enough to bother some with allergies and asthma.

However, there are some positive aspects to the Saharan dust.

One is limiting the development of tropical systems in the Atlantic due to the dry air surrounding the dust.

According to CNN meteorologist Haley Brink, "the dust particles high up in the atmosphere can scatter sunlight and create some of the most vivid sunsets. "

The dust should improve by the end of the week.
