Fog covered many parts of the UAE on Tuesday morning, reducing visibility to less than 1,000 metres at several places.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has called on motorists to take all precautions and adhere to the traffic regulations due to fog formation and poor visibility.
The NCM added that the fog will reduce horizontal visibility which is expected to be less than 1,000 metres at times over some coastal and internal areas of the country.
The weather today will be fair to partly cloudy at times. Humidity will increase by late night and early morning over some internal and coastal areas with a chance of fog or mist formation.
"The wind will be light to moderate and will be northeasterly to northwesterly, with a speed of 18 - 30 km/hr, reaching 40 km/hr at times. The sea will be slight to moderate in the Arabian Gulf, and in Oman sea," NCM said.
