If you had ‘Saharan Dust Storm’ on your 2020 BINGO card – give yourself a point!

A giant layer of thick dust that traveled all the way from the Saharan desert in Africa will blow into the Northern Illinois region this weekend. The good news is that it will lead to some pretty stunning sunrise/sunsets in deep shades of red! The days might be a bit hazy and there is potential for reduced air quality, muddy rains, and overall less visibility. This dust storm should move out of our area mid-next week.

Check out the sunrise we enjoyed at the station on Friday morning!
