UAE weather: Hazy conditions as freshening winds pick up dust

Still hot and humid at night

Fog and mist is expected in some areas of the country today, with cloud and hazy conditions set to continue for the next two days.

Mist covered the Liwa region early this morning, according to the National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology, which said cloud cover will intensify over the east.

It will still be hot and humid at night and during the morning across the coast with light to moderate winds in general, freshening at times during the afternoon. This may cause blowing dust over some exposed areas.
