You would have been forgiven for thinking the apocalypse came to Dubbo on Tuesday as a massive dust storm blanketed the city.
The top soil from out west blew through the city and many people grabbed their phones to capture the unbelievable colour.
The weather in Dubbo is starting to heat up and if rain doesn't hit the region soon more dust storms should be expected.
Small showers are predicted for Dubbo on Friday and Saturday. Next week is expected to reach a high of 31 on Tuesday and Wednesday.
