IN IMAGES, IN PICTURES – A meteorological phenomenon transported sand from the Sahara desert.
French people woke up under a colorful sky this Saturday morning. In Lyon in particular, the sky was tinged with a yellow, ocher color.
The reason ? A meteorological phenomenon called Sirocco that is observed every year but which occurs exceptionally early. It is a Mediterranean depression whose winds rise from the sand of the Sahara desert.
The phenomenon was also observed in Strasbourg where the top of the cathedral disappeared in the thick orange cloud.
This ocher color should disappear on Sunday with the onset of the rains but the temperatures will be very mild with in particular 21 ° C in Corsica and 17 ° C in Marseille.
