Foggy Conditions Blanket UAE, Motorists Advised Caution

As for temperature forecasts, the internal regions of the country are expected to experience maximum temperatures ranging between 23 and 28°C

Residents across the United Arab Emirates woke up to foggy weather conditions today, as the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) issued yellow and red alerts due to decreased visibility.

The fog, expected to persist until 9 am, prompted warnings for motorists to exercise caution on the roads.


According to the NCM, the weather will vary from partly cloudy to cloudy in some eastern and southern areas, with a chance of rainfall.

The fog, coupled with the deterioration in horizontal visibility, poses challenges for commuters navigating internal and coastal areas.

In Abu Dhabi, fog was reported over Al Khatim – Al Faya Road and Al Wathba, while in Ras Al Khaimah, it affected Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road.

Additionally, light rain was recorded over Gasyoura in the Dhafra region earlier this morning.

As for temperature forecasts, the internal regions of the country are expected to experience maximum temperatures ranging between 23 and 28°C.

Coastal areas and islands will see highs of 20 to 25°C, while temperatures in the mountains are expected to range from 13 to 19°C.


Winds are predicted to be light to moderate, occasionally freshening in the Northeast to Northwest direction, with speeds ranging from 10 to 25 kilometres per hour and reaching up to 40 km/hr at times.

Despite the foggy conditions, the sea is expected to remain relatively calm to moderate in the Arabian Gulf and slightly in the Oman Sea.

Authorities have urged motorists to adhere to traffic regulations and exercise caution while driving, especially in areas prone to fog formation.

Reduced visibility can significantly impact road safety, emphasizing the need for drivers to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and to use headlights and hazard lights when necessary.

This weather pattern comes amidst a transitional period in the UAE, as the country moves from the cooler winter months to the warmer spring season.

Such fluctuations in weather conditions are not uncommon during this time of the year, highlighting the importance of staying informed and prepared for sudden changes in weather patterns.

As residents brace themselves for the foggy conditions, authorities continue to monitor the situation closely and provide timely updates to ensure the safety and well-being of the public.

With proper precautions and awareness, commuters can navigate through challenging weather conditions with minimal disruptions.

In conclusion, as fog blankets the UAE, residents are reminded to exercise caution, stay informed, and prioritize safety on the roads.
