Al Ain: Weathermen have warned of the chances of heavy fog and mist on Monday morning in different parts of the northern and eastern emirates.

The north-westerly winds can also kick up dust in the western areas of the country that will reduce visibility during the daytime. This condition is also expected to extend in most areas of the country by afternoon and evening.

The National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), has forecast hazy and mild daytime weather in general, that would turn pleasant in the night.

“There will be another fall in the night time temperature,” said an official of the NCMS, indicating a good chance of fog or mist in some areas.

The winds may blow at the speed of 16 knots overland but they are expected to gain more strength in over sea, reaching to a speed of 24 knots. “The sea will also be rough with four to six feet high waves offshore,” he added.

The NCMS official said summer conditions are around the corner. The maximum and minimum temperature in different cities of the UAE ranges from 15 to 31 degree Celsius.

The level of maximum humidity has also increased, reaching 90 per cent in Sharjah, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah, while in other cities it is around 80 to 85 per cent.
