Dubai: Forecasters have urged motorists to drive with caution in the early mornings of this weekend due to possible fog or mist formation.

Visibility may deteriorate in the early mornings of Friday and Saturday in internal and coastal areas, especially going to the west.

“We will be issuing a warning for motorists this weekend due to fog or mist. If it’s dense fog, it could cause visibility to decrease to maybe less than 1,500 metres at times. But if it’s mist, visibility could go down to 1,500m to 2,000m.

There is fog or mist formation at this time because the track of wind affecting this part of the country is humid and coming from the sea. So when the temperature is down at night, the air becomes saturated, resulting in fog or mist,” a forecaster told Gulf News. More info
