UAE residents woke up to fog again this week as a thick fog engulfed few parts of emirates. Dubai, in particular, was relatively foggier than yesterday.
The National Center of Meteorology & Seismology confirmed the continuity of fog formation and poor visibility of less than 500 metres over some of the coastal and internal areas.
We managed to get a glimpse of the heavy fog on Abu Dhabi - Liwa highway this morning. 

The temperature, in general, will be fair and hazy at times. It will be a relatively hot day and might get mild during the night. The relative humidity is set to increase during night and early morning with a chance of fog/mist formation over some coastal and internal areas. 
The maximum temperature recorded today was 42.7°C in Um Azimul. Temperatures are set to soar in the UAE with a rise in humidity to up to 95 per cent, according to NCMS.
Sea will be moderate and might become rough at times to the west in the Arabian Gulf and slight to moderate in Oman Sea.
