An African dust advection episode is in progress this week. Its maximum activity will be observed during Orthodox Good Friday (26/4/2019).
In particular, on Friday (26/4/2019) most countries of eastern Europe (see map) will be affected by this phenomenon. Italy, west Balkans, Greece and Turkey will be affected the most, while some dust may be observed even in southern Scandinavia.
This dust episode will remain on Saturday in these countries tending to weaken. However, on Sunday (Orthodox Easter) the dust load will be restricted around Greece and Turkey and maybe Ukraine and western Russia presenting a noticeably weaker intensity.
