On Saturday, the UAE’s National Center of Meteorology said it expected the weather to be “wet and foggy on Sunday in coastal areas of the country in the morning and generally clear and sometimes partly cloudy,” according to Emirates News Agency (WAM).

Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) said that “low visibility in fog reduces your sense of vehicle speed.”

“We advise you to lower speed and use fog lights for your safety and that of others on the road,” RTA added.
