UAE weather: Foggy mornings, low visibility

By Bindu Rai

Motorists should take heed as the weekend will signal in fog-filled mornings that could cause hindrance in horizontal visibility over scattered areas of the UAE.

The country’s National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has attributed this weather development to a spike in the humidity levels across the UAE, hitting highs of 95 per cent in the coastal and internal areas as per the forecast.

The Mercury will also level out with lows averaging seven degrees Celsius in the mountains and eight degrees in the internal areas.

The NCMS has stated Friday in general will remain fair and partly cloudy, with light to moderate winds.

The rough seas of the past 48 hours will reduce to slight to moderate in the in the Arabian Gulf and in Oman Sea.

However, be warned as the relative humidity is expected to increase during night and early morning on Saturday over the internal areas, with a probability of mist formation over scattered areas.

Saturday in general will continue in kind, with the relative humidity continuing to wreak havoc with an increase during night and early morning over internal areas and giving rise to fog.

Those who plan on camping in neighbouring Oman over the weekend may encounter some wet weather, with snow reported on Thursday morning at Jebel Shams as temperatures plummeted to zero degrees.
