A very thick Saharan dust cloud is moving over the Mediterranean Sea into Italy and Southeast Europe over the past couple of days. Coupled with exceptionally high temperatures affecting the region, this dust is contributing to lower visibility, respiratory issues, and lower Air Quality Index.

The worst affected on June 23 are Sicily and southern Italy, most of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, and western Greece. On June 24, dust cloud will spread over large parts of SE Europe, including Slovenia, Croatia, and Serbia.

The worst affected on June 25 will be southern Italy and western Greece.
