Several areas in the UAE could be experiencing fog and mist this morning, as the UAE gears up for another slightly cooler day.

Light mist and fog with low visibility was witnessed over Zayed City in the early hours of Sunday morning, according to the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology.

Residents were warned to take caution as visibility was reduced in the area to less than 1,000 metres from 3:30am to around 9am.

The weather will be fair in general with partial clouds and haze at times over some areas, the centre said, with another decrease in temperature.

Light to moderate winds over land, freshening at times around noon over some exposed areas, will cause blowing dust with humidity likely to increase at night and in the early hours of Monday morning over some coastal and internal areas.

The centre also warned of further probability of fog and mist, especially westwards.

The sea will be rough in the Arabian Gulf, and slight to moderate in the Oman Sea with temperatures reaching highs of 38C internally and lows of 16C.
