Dusty Days In The Desert

A Dust Advisory remains in effect for the Coachella Valley and the Banning Pass through 11 p-m on Tuesday February 22nd 2022.

The Advisory was issued at 1 in the morning on Monday February 21st 2022 as strong winds whipped up desert sand, creating poor visibility and even worse air quality.

A High Wind Warning remains in effect for the Desert and the Pass through 9 p-m Tuesday February 22nd 2022.

So that face mask, which the State of California famously announced on February 15th 2022, is no longer needed indoors to fend off Covid-19, might come in very handy outdoors, to fend off Mother Nature’s latest blast of swirling dirt aimed at your nose and lungs.

You can also toss in cooler daytime highs, only around 60 degrees, and overnight lows in the upper 30’s and low 40’s, and a 30 percent change of passing showers in the desert.
