The sands of the Algerian desert travel thousands of miles to cover the snow of Europe

Arab Weather - In a rare historical event, sands traveled from the Sahara desert for thousands of miles from Africa to make their way through Europe, and the white snow turned to orange, as a sandstorm swept over several parts of Europe yesterday, and the column of dust spread in the air to leave a frightening shade of color Yellow in the sky.

The strong winds in Africa caused sand to be carried from the Sahara Desert (the Algerian Sahara in particular), and swept through Europe before reaching the Alpine ranges and settling on the snow. La Fouly in Val Ferret, Switzerland, is dotted with African sand.

France's National Weather Service and Climate Service has released a satellite image showing a view from space of sand from the Sahara desert advancing towards Europe, as the low-pressure system in the Iberian Peninsula in Europe causes a strong southern wind flow that brings sand from the African Sahara. To continental Europe.
