UAE weather: Red, yellow alerts for fog; police issue warning

This weather phenomenon has prompted warnings from both the NCM and Abu Dhabi Police, emphasizing the need for vigilance, particularly when venturing outside and driving

In a recent update from the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the weather forecast for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) suggests fair to partly cloudy conditions.

However, residents are urged to exercise caution due to red and yellow alerts issued for fog in various parts of the country.


This weather phenomenon has prompted warnings from both the NCM and Abu Dhabi Police, emphasizing the need for vigilance, particularly when venturing outside and driving.

As fog blankets certain regions of the UAE, authorities take no chances to ensure public safety.

Abu Dhabi Police, in response to the weather forecast, has issued warnings to motorists, urging them to pay close attention to changing speed limits on roads.

The reduced visibility caused by thick fog can create hazardous driving conditions, forcing drivers to adjust their speed accordingly.

The cautionary measures come as a proactive step to prevent accidents and ensure the well-being of residents and visitors alike.

While fog concerns dominate the warnings, the temperature forecast remains relatively mild for this time of year.


Abu Dhabi is expected to reach a high of 26°C, with Dubai not far behind at 27°C. Nighttime temperatures are predicted to drop to 20°C in Abu Dhabi and 21°C in Dubai, providing a pleasant respite from the daytime warmth.

However, humidity is expected to increase during the night and into Wednesday morning, with a chance of mist forming over some internal areas.

The weather report also highlights the influence of light to moderate winds, contributing to the potential formation of blowing dust.

Residents are advised to take precautions to protect against respiratory issues, as dust particles may become airborne in the wind.

Additionally, sea conditions are expected to be rough in the Arabian Gulf and moderate to rough at times in the Oman Sea.

Maritime activities should be cautiously approached, and sailors are urged to stay updated on weather conditions before setting sail.

Community awareness and preparedness play crucial roles as the UAE faces these weather challenges.

Residents are encouraged to stay informed about the latest weather updates through official channels and to follow safety guidelines provided by local authorities.

Simple measures can significantly contribute to community well-being by reducing driving speeds in foggy conditions and securing loose objects in outdoor spaces to prevent them from becoming airborne in gusty winds.

In the ever-changing landscape of weather patterns, the UAE finds itself navigating through a period of fog alerts and shifting conditions.

While the temperatures remain relatively mild, the cautionary measures underscore the importance of community safety.

As residents adapt to the weather challenges, staying informed and heeding official warnings will be vital to ensuring a secure and comfortable experience during this weather event.

In the face of foggy roadways and potential hazards, the UAE community demonstrates resilience and preparedness, embodying the spirit of unity in the face of nature’s unpredictability.
