Fog and mist reduced visibility for motorists in some parts of the country on Tuesday morning.

From 2am, conditions over inland and coastal areas of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah reached less than 500 metres, according to the National Centre for Meteorology. Fog cover is expected to lift by 8am.

The centre advised motorists to drive carefully, or pull over until visibility improved.

Weather is expected to be fair for the rest of the day, with a chance of cloud formation over the eastern mountains.

Temperatures will peak at 41ºC on the coast, 43ºC inland and 36ºC in the mountains.

Humidity is likely to increase to about 85 per cent at night, leading to potential fog and mist tomorrow morning over some coastal and internal areas.

The seas will be slight to moderate and light to moderate winds will freshen the air.
