When ZTC met SAL-ly.
Had you any idea that sand storms in Africa could be effecting tropical storms in the Caribbean? We didn’t, but apparently it’s true. The Saharan Air Layer (SAL), a very dry air-mass originating from the African continent, is so dry that it can inhibit the formation and/or intensification of tropical storms. That is a GOOD thing!
We like SAL, even though we’ve been told that the dust that ends up on our bimini originates from it.
