    The Saharan dust has diminished a little bit. There is still a good amount around, but the conditions are slowly improving. The air quality index is in a moderate condition, so continue to use caution if you have any breathing or allergy concerns. There will be a few clouds, at times mostly cloudy during the day. There will also be plenty of sunshine peeking its way through the clouds here and there. I have a 20% chance of some rain, but that is being very generous.
