Ex-Hurricane Ophelia is causing a ‘red sun phenomenon’ across Hertfordshire and other parts of England.
The red sun can be seen above St Albans, Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Stevenage and Royston, causing the sky to appear yellow.
According to the BBC, the phenomenon is caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia dragging in air and dust from the Sahara.
The storm itself is more likely to affect the west of the country, with Ireland and west Wales the most affected. The Met Office forecast for the east of England is windy but largely dry, with strong and gusty winds predicted for the evening and overnight.
