ABU DHABI // Motorists are urged to take extra care on the roads as forecasters warn of fog in northern areas on Sunday. There is a chance of reduced visibility, said the duty forecaster at the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS).

Southeasterly wind will prevail over most areas, particularly the interior. It will be relatively humid early in the morning. Tomorrow temperatures are expected to reach a maximum of up to 32ºC in the interior and 29ºC on the coast.

The sea will be slight to moderate, so fishermen can venture out, the forecaster said. Meanwhile, Monday’s weather will be cloudy at times over some areas, with a chance of light rain.

Winds will cause blowing dust, resulting to poor visibility at times in open areas.Humidity will increase during the night and early morning over the coast and interior, with a chance of fog over some areas. The sea will be moderate, becoming rough in the evening.
