DISCUSSION: As high pressure continued to dominate the large-scale weather pattern across many parts of the Middle-East over the past several days, some of the stronger winds on the backside of the main high pressure system had some interesting consequences on the landscape of the region. As seen in the image above, many areas along and to the south of the Arabian Sea experienced a wide-ranging series of dust storms which enveloped the region in large quantities of dust. It is worth noting that dust can often have disastrous consequences of large quantities of the Arabian Peninsula which can have major implications of transportation (i.e., by reducing the ability to have reasonably safe visibility capabilities whether it is on the ground or in the air).
