Dubai: Humid early mornings will continue in the UAE for the second straight day on Monday, although Dubai and the northern emirates will be spared.
Forecasters at the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology said relative humidity will shoot up, reaching up to 100 per cent from 3am on Monday along the western coast.
“Relative humidity will increase from Sunday night to Monday early morning with a chance of mist and fog formation along the western coastal areas of the UAE,” a forecaster said.
Humidity levels were also high on Sunday morning, resulting in foggy conditions in parts of the country. Dense fog caused visibility to deteriorate to 50 metres in Liwa, Madinat Zayed, and Sweihan between 3am and 6am on Sunday. Other areas affected by the fog were Dubai, Sharjah, and neighbouring areas extending to Ras Al Khaimah.
“The type of fog we are experiencing now is called radiation fog which is normal at this time of the year. The conditions are perfect for fog and mist formation: gentle winds, increasing humidity, clear skies, and rapidly decreasing temperatures,” the forecaster said. More info
