An unusual dust storm covered much of Macedonia today, as southern winds brought sand and dust which covered cars and homes.

We are talking about a major transport of dust which will persist, even intensify in the coming days, said meteorologist Slavco Poposki.

Temperatures will also begin to rise quickly as of tomorrow, and daily highs will begin to reach up to 30 degrees Centigrade. The stormy and windy weather is also causing issues for people suffering from weather induced symptoms.
