The UAE's official weather forecaster, the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS), has issued a warning as dense fog has led to visibility falling to near zero in various parts of the country this morning.
Traffic congestions on various routes, most notably the Sheikh Zayed Road going from Dubai towards Abu Dhabi, as a result of the dense blanket of fog as well as numerous accidents that have resulted due to commuters not slowing down or taking enough safety precautions.
Drivers are being advised to remain extra cautious on the roads, and avoid driving altogether if possible until the fog burns out in due time.
The NCMS forecasts fog not only for the early morning, but for the evening and night across the UAE. The foggy conditions are likely to stay for the rest of the week. – Emirates 24|7
