ABU DHABI: The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology, NCMS, has urged motorists to be cautious due to fog and dust in various areas of the country.

In a statement on Monday, the NCMS said that the weather today will be relatively hot during the daytime, mild by night in general, partly cloudy and hazy over some areas at times.

The clouds will appear over some eastern and southern areas of the country, may become convective at times by afternoon, with light to moderate winds in general, freshening at times by afternoon, and may cause some blowing dust over some exposed areas.

"The relative humidity is likely to increase during night and early morning over some coastal and internal areas, with a chance of fog and mist formation. Slight to moderate sea in the Arabian Gulf and Sea of Oman," the statement added.

The NCMS also noted that on Tuesday and Wednesday, the conditions are likely to be the same.
