Most of the UAE is likely to be covered by a blanket of fog over the next two mornings and temperatures are expected to drop by two to three degrees, according to the National Center for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) forecast.

A met official at NCMS was quoted as saying by Gulf News that an increase in relative humidity overnight will help develop thick blankets of fog in most of the in land areas, including Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and the eastern parts.

“Chance of fog in land is quite high over the next two days, with wind heading from the sea, rising the level of humidity at night, so early mornings will be foggy by up to 80 to 90 percent,” the official reportedly said.

He added, the fog cover will be higher in the Western areas on Monday morning.

Strong north-westerly winds from Saturday night are also expected to make the sea choppy, with waves rising up to six feet off shore and up to four feet on shore, the report said.

Weather experts have reportedly cautioned beachgoers as both the Arabian Gulf and the Oman Sea are expected to be rough for the next two days.

Though, there is no chance of rain the next two days are likely to be partly cloudy with the minimum temperatures in the coastal area hovering around 19 to 21 degrees Celsius, while the maximum will be around 30 degrees Celsius.

On Saturday thick fog had enveloped parts of Dubai, Sharjah and other parts of the UAE, disrupting several flights at the Dubai International Airport, said the news portal.

An Emirates spokesperson reportedly told Gulf News in a statement that severe fog in Dubai on Saturday caused the cancellation and delay of numerous Emirates flights arriving and departing at Dubai International Airport.

“Emirates urges customers to check their flight status on Emirates website for the latest information regarding their flights. Emirates apologizes for the inconvenience caused. The safety of our passengers and crew is of utmost importance and will not be compromised,” the spokesperson said.

The NCMS warned of “poor visibility of less than 100 meters” on Abu Dhabi-Dubai roads, the Abu Dhabi western area, Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, Umm Al Quwain and Ras Al Khaimah.

Motorists have been warned to keep distance between vehicles and drive slow when the visibility is poor, reported GN.
