BEEN wondering why the sky has a yellow tinge to it today?

Well you're not the only one.

The sky's strange hue combined with a pinky red sun has left readers (and us) perplexed.

However, it is believed to be a combination of Saharan dust pulled in by ex-hurricane Ophelia and smoke from the forest fires in Portugal.

By lunchtime in Salisbury city centre, the sky had turned dark with it resembling night-time rather than day.

Winds of up to 109mph have already been recorded off the south coast of Ireland as ex hurricane Ophelia reaches the British Isles.

The Met Office has issued amber warnings for Northern Ireland, South West Scotland, Strathclyde and Wales.

Yellow warnings have been issued for the south west of England however this does not include Wiltshire.
