Follow changing speed limits displayed on electronic information boards on Thursday morning given poor visibility.

The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) has warned of fog formation and deteriorating horizontal visibility over some internal and coastal areas between 1am and 9.30am on Thursday morning.

Abu Dhabi Police were among the UAE authorities reinforcing the warning by urging motorists to exercise caution due to reduced visibility during the fog.

A maximum speed limit of 80km/h will be in place during the fog, the force said. It also urged motorists to keep a safe distance and avoid using hazard warning lights.

In a tweet, the force added: "Motorists are urged to follow changing speed limits displayed on electronic information boards."

It will be sunny in general for the rest of Thursday, with a humid evening

The rest of Thursday will be sunny in general, the NCM said, with a top temperature of 46 degrees in internal areas.

The weather bureau says it will be humid in the evening and on Friday morning over some coastal and internal areas, along with fog and mist formation.

There will be light to moderate south-easterly to northerly and north-easterly winds, freshening at times during daytime.

Conditions will be slight to moderate in the Arabian Gulf and in Oman Sea.
