Many in Melbourne woke to find their gardens, balconies and pools coated in a layer of red dust.

Neil Mitchell was one of those who woke to the unusual sight at his home, in Melbourne’s south-east.

“My outdoor furniture is covered in orange sludge,” the 3AW Mornings host said.

A dust storm which began in the state’s north yesterday is the culprit.

A cold front last night carried the dirty air into metropolitan Melbourne.
