Say goodbye to those beautiful blue skies this weekend, Texas. 

We’ve been fortunate in that the air quality has been good so far this summer here in the Lone Star State. That will change when a dust plume from the Sahara Desert in Africa reaches our shores this weekend, according to CW 39.  

The plume is expected to arrive Friday night into Saturday morning. You can see the dust plume that’s headed our way with a live look from Anguilla. The dust is high enough in the air to not have a major impact on health or air quality.
