Dubai: Cooling down continues in the UAE, with weathermen pointing to an even lower pre-dawn temperature today, compared to the day before.

On Wednesday, the lowest recorded temperature in the UAE was 22.4 °C in Jebel Jais mountain ranges in Ras al Khaimah at 3am.

On Thursday, it went further down to 21.6 °C recorded in Damtha at 5.45am.

Forecasters predict cooler climes during the afternoon, but warned of warm, blowing dust over some exposed areas as well as thick fog during early mornings.

The National Centre for Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) in a Thursday forecast has said that Thursday will be generally hazy, and partly cloudy at times during the day.

Thick fog blanketed huge swathes of the UAE's south-western side close to the Empty Quarter early on Thursday morning.

The fog was seen in the UAE's Al Hamra district.
