Unusual color at sunset when hurricane in Gulf
I am in central Texas and have observed this phenomenon for decades and hope someone can answer the WHY.

When there is a hurricane or developing hurricane in the Gulf the sunsets and to a lesser degree sunrises cast a "stained glass" effect. Everything appears to be shaded in pastels, not really hazy but the colors are muted and appear heavier in the pinks and orange shades. What causes this to happen?

Even if I haven't been keeping track of the weather, when I see this weird lighting in the evening, there is a storm in the Gulf. I have yet to see a false positive.
