In the United States, haboobs generally occur in the Southwest, where dust and sand over desert areas get kicked up in the downbursts," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Andrew Mussoline. "Generally haboobs go unnoticed, but can affect cities across the Southwest from time to time during the summer months."Radar archives indicate that there was a line of strong thunderstorms that moved from east to west across the Phoenix area over the weekend. The strong winds associated with those storms, in combination with the desert conditions, was likely the cause of the haboob.cool pic "@E_Pinny: Haboob from above!
