June 23, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett | The Meteorological Services in Antigua and Barbuda is reporting air quality across much of the Atlantic and several Caribbean islands will be moderate due to a plume of Saharan Dust.
The dust plume range is between 2.5 and 10. Air quality is expected to improve a little next week before it deteriorates again when another plume arrives.
Saharan Dust activity in the region typically ramps-up in mid-June, peaks between late June and mid-August and then quickly subsides after mid-August.
