Sinus and allergy sufferers just can't seem to catch a break from the unwanted gifts that the Saharan dust brings.

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (Met Office) has advised that another plume of Saharan dust will move over the islands on Saturday. 

It says dust concentrations are expected to be moderate for the weekend period, with a gradual decrease into next week.

Those "sensitive" to this change in air quality are being advised to take the necessary precautions.
