Dust activity in July 2019 was subdued because wind strength was low and groundcover values in parts of the west and south have improved over the past three months due to recent rainfall in the area. This groundcover has little vegetative bulk and does not provide substantial relief from the drought but is sufficient to prevent dust emission in July 2019.

Dust activity was less than expected due to increasing cover in the west.
