After the snow and temperature dip of early April, the weather is going to get mild again from Monday 11th. But if you think this is a good moment to bring your vehicle to the car wash and show it off, glistening in the sunlight, think again. According to Weer.nl, the warm south-eastern winds will also bring with them Saharan dust.
This is not the first time this year that this happens in the Netherlands. In mid-March, a high-pressure area stretching from North Africa to Scandinavia had created an ideal current for desert dust to be carried to Western and Central Europe.
In March, the high concentration of dust particles made it easier for water vapor in the air to condense, helping the formation of clouds and lowering the temperature. Will it happen again this time?
The meteorologists at Weer.nl seem confident that this time we won’t see the same weather changes due to the sand in the atmosphere, since it seems like there will be much fewer particles reaching the Netherlands.
The peak of sand concentration in the atmosphere is expected between late Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon.
