We have noticed Saharan Air and associated dust making it across the
Atlantic and the Caribbean
already this year, with a relatively impressive area moving across the
eastern Caribbean at this time.
See the UW-CIMSS analysis and loops here Saharan Air Analysis
where orange and red colors
depict very dry air. In fact, some dust made it into Miami and across South
Florida just a few days ago,
so warm season processes are already at play.

become global garbage cans."

> It can be seen here-
> At least the dust suppresses storm formation
