Today in the morning I woke up and didn't believe my eyes, the sky was yellowish overall. It wasn't sunrise, because the clouds were yellowish!!!
The sky stayed yellowish for the whole morning until 1pm. I called a friend of mine from Zurich, Switzerland, he said they also had yellowish skies these days

I remember when I was skiing in the French Alps a few years ago we had winds from the Sahara. The temperature in the resort on the day we got there was 20C and we actually sat out in the evening. When it snowed, it actually snowed sand and dust that had been carried by the wind, and the ski slopes were reddish. So at the end of the day you could see clearly peoples tracks that had been left.

"A natural spectacle was seen on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2004 in Lofer, Austria and in other parts of the alpine country. A violent storm from the south brought sand from the north African Sahara desert, turning the sky dark and yellow. The snow reflects the sky's yellow tones. (AP Photo/Kerstin Joensson)"
