Quick Reference

Rain that leaves a deposit of fine dust on the ground, cars, and other objects, and which is often noticeably pink or red. The dust normally originates in arid regions, and under the right conditions may be carried for considerable distances before being swept out by precipitation falling from a higher layer of cloud. Saharan dust frequently affects Western Europe in this way.
