  • For dust/sand storms forecast, I would recommend this WMO, specialized site.



  • Anyway,guys. I am suggesting creating an icon or icons to indicate sand or dust conditions in the forecasts and in the weather stations observations display.The sand is blowing in these areas and stations showing nothing except the strong wind.



  • Another scattered sandstorms, this time 3 storms in a row! two small are in Egypt and Algeria and a huge one is in Libya.Opera Snapshot_2020-05-02_001740_www.windy.com.png Opera Snapshot_2020-05-02_001833_www.windy.com.png2.png Opera Snapshot_2020-05-02_001914_www.windy.com.png3.png
