Saharan Dust Could Put a Damper on Hurricane Season

It looks like there won't be any tropical development in the Caribbean anytime soon.

That's because a plume of dust from the Sahara Desert has made it to the Caribbean.

The dust has since made it to Florida.

Typically dust prevents any disturbances from intensifying into tropical storms and then hurricanes.

Hurricanes don't like dry air in the middle parts of the atmosphere, and that's exactly what the Saharan Air Layer is.
