WATCH: Miami Meteorologist Jumps Out of Plane to Find Saharan Dust

WPLG‘s Roland Steadham said last Friday and Saturday was an unusually rain free time in the Miami area.

The meteorologist for the Miami ABC affiliate told viewers the dry skies might be caused by the Saharan Desert. “There is a theory in the world of meteorology,” said Steadham during the Sunday morning news. “That Saharan dust will suppress showers and thunderstorms and tropical systems from forming.”

So Steadham strapped a camera to himself and jumped out of an airplane in search of the culprit. He said he found it at 6000 feet. “Notice, last two days again, no shower or thunderstorm activity,” Steadham told viewers back on solid ground at the weather board. “I really think that the Saharan Dust kinda squashed the atmosphere and kept things from forming.”
