Fog is expected to blanket the coastal areas early morning today as well and tomorrow especially in the western parts of the country.

According to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), the weather condition during these two days will be hazy and partly cloudy at times with some towering clouds developing over the eastern areas in the afternoon. This accumulation of clouds in the east may extend to the southern regions.

Winds will be light to moderate. Relative humidity will increase during the night and early morning over some coastal and internal areas with the chance of fog formation.

The sea will be slight to moderate but the NCMS warns of poor visibility in the early morning due to fog.

Maximum temperature inland will be between 46 and 48 degrees C; 37 to 42 degrees C along the coastal areas; and 29 to 34 degrees C in the mountainous region. Minimum temperature, meanwhile, is expected to reach 24 to 29 degrees C inland, 27 to 32 degrees C in the coastal regions and between, 22 and 29 degrees C in the mountain.
