UAE weather: Fog reduces visibility to 50m in parts of the country

High temperatures are also forecast with a range of 29°C to 44°C expected inland and between 24°C and 49°C along the coast.

ABU DHABI // Residents in the capital woke up to sticky conditions and haze today as humidity continues to increase.

Forecasters warned against poor visibility across the country, as low as 50 metres in Liwa and Zayed City and less than 1km in other areas.

High temperatures are also forecast with a range of 29°C to 44°C expected inland and between 24°C and 49°C along the coast.

Light to moderate winds will offer little respite as they are expected to pick up blowing dust, reducing visibility further across exposed areas — such as motorways — in the country.

Those suffering from respiratory problems are advised to venture outdoors with caution.

Skies will be partly cloudy across most of the country with heavier clouds expected along the East and in Ras Al Khaimah.

Humidity will again increase overnight and into Wednesday morning causing further fog and mist.

Waters will be moderate to rough at times in both the Sea of Oman and Arabian Gulf.
