Abu Dhabi Police have urged motorists to drive carefully during the fog. “During periods of fog, the maximum speed on Abu Dhabi roads is reduced to 80 kilometres per hours, and motorists are urged to commit to this limit for their own safety and that of other road users,” the Police urged.

In the coastal areas, temperature highs will be between 21-26°C, and 17-21°C in the mountainous regions.
