Surbiton also has a very yellowy tinge to the clouds along with a positively Mediterranean wind making for a sultry 'before the storm' feel, as others have noted. Unfortunately the sky is very resolutely cloudy here, so I can't get a red sun shot. During these kinds of unusual events it's great having a forum like this to share and learn - @Nick F's blog made for an interesting read regarding Saharan sand with a bit of Portuguese wild fires thrown in to explain what's happening.

Very dark here with an orange sky and rather eerie.  Looks like a Martian sky which would make sense with the Saharan dust!

Just along the coast from you now in Saltdean lsf..strange day to say the least.

A balmy sunny morning with tropical breezes.Red hazy sunshine,then daytime dusk.Birds going crazy thinking night is falling as street lights come on.Really can smell a sulphur smell in the air too.

Can someone tell the Sahara to give their weather back!? Very dark brown/orange sky right now, very eerie. What a change from yesterday when there were beautiful blue skies.

Just been out to get the kids on the school run and saw a blanket of orange and black cloud rolling in , amazingly some of the clouds seemed to be blue yes blue , There was also occasionally a heavily blob of rain falling , I tried to see if any dust was deposited on the cars etc but visibility isn’t that great . Here are some pics I’ve taken . There is also quite a steady wind blowing but obviously nothing to what’s happening further west .

Hi All,

wow it is dark (with an orange tint) here in Southend, this is my first time back in Essex for a few weeks and it looks like someone turned the lights off whilst I was away, was this a predicted side effect of the tropical strom?

Cheers

It’s amazing I’m near Horsham. 

Its reminding me of the eclipse 1999, 

It started around 1:30pm here. Suddenly huge gust of wind and the sun turned Red, around 2:30pm it was getting dark had to put my lights on. Then everything looked yellow! Brightening up a little now....impressive clouds, deep grey sky with orange and yellow swirls of cloud.
