weather phenomena On Friday morning, Ölandsblad reported that Öland, and even Gotland, had precipitated a red powder. When she talked with Camilla Andersson, a researcher at the SMHI regional climate, she explained:
"This is the sand from the Sahara," Ölandsbladet says.
On Wednesday it fell heavily in the Sahara, which hit the sand particles far into the atmosphere, and reached it Friday through Sweden. When the rain fell, the sand was mixed with drips, but since the rain has fallen from Gotland and Öland in recent days, very small sand grains fell to the ground and dust on the ground and objects.
