If you are wondering what is blowing in the tropical wind.

It's name is SAL.

Those little white clouds you see moving west are African Dust

And, it makes the sunsets red... like the dust from Africa

As someone who has lived in Key West
I can tell you.... doesn't always look like that!

This is the bulk of it:

Dries out the atmosphere.
Worth noting:
Later in the season tropical systems will go where the dust went.
Often enough so watch it's movements.

The King of this Hurricane Season may be EL NINO

But the Prince of this Hurricane Season may be SAL

Women working in meteorology for today 

She seems to enjoy what she does.
Good for her!
