Fog blanketed Dubai on Sunday morning, with the authorities urging drivers to be cautious in poor conditions.

The country's National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said the city's desert suburbs were among the areas most affected.

Drivers on Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road said conditions were dangerous.

Visibility on the roads to Abu Dhabi was also poor, particularly outside the city.

Early morning fog and high humidity is common in the autumn and usually dissipates by mid morning.

Temperatures will range between 22°C to 34°C while humidity could reach anything up to 80 per cent.

Abu Dhabi began the day with early periodic cloud but this will soon disappear.

Temperatures in Abu Dhabi are forecast to be much higher with a possible peak of 90 per cent.

Come night time, it will be humid across the UAE with the possibility of mist in some coastal areas on Monday morning.
