The sky above parts of Spain turned a bright orange on Monday, as Storm Celia brought dust from the Sahara desert to the country.

People across Spain stepped outside to an orange sky and cars covered in dust early this week. The dust traveled all the way from the Sahara desert, brought over by strong jet stream winds. 
The dust, combined with rains from storm Celia led to what people in Spain are describing as “raining mud”. The air quality across Spain reached “dangerous” levels today, March 15. 
“It is causing views more typical of the planet Mars,” said Currently’s Madrid meteorologist, Emilio Rey. “The air quality was the worst on the entire planet this Wednesday, and the risk for the elderly, children, and people with respiratory problems is extreme.”
Climate change is making dust storms in the Sahara more intense, largely because of extended periods of drought.
