UAE residents will wake up to more foggy mornings this week, the weather agency has warned.

Following heavy fog that affected visibility all over the UAE on Sunday, the National Centre of Meteorology noted that fog and mist can be expected in the UAE during the next few days.

According to Dr Ahmed Habib from the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the UAE has been experiencing unstable weather conditions over the past few days, leading to foggy weather.

“The fog formation inland is caused by high pressure and temperature radiation from the land due to lower temperatures during the late night and early morning,” said Habib.

According to the National Center of Meteroology (NCM) the lowest temperature recorded over the UAE was 7.3°C in Raknah (Al Ain) at 06:30 UAE time.

The agency said weather in the UAE will be fair and partly cloudy till Wednesday with chances of fog formation in the mornings. However, on Thursday and Friday, it will be dusty and partly cloudy with a drop in temperatures.
