Drivers are being urged to take care on the roads this morning - with visibility affected by a dusty start to the day.

The National Center of Meteorology said that visibility for motorists is less than 3,000 metres in some cases, due to dust clouds scattered across the country.

It will be another hot and hazy day as temperatures continue to soar during the sweltering summer period.

The stifling heat will be lessened by some light and moderate winds.

Temperatures are expected to reach highs of 49C in inland areas, with humidity up to 80 per cent on the coast.
