Abu Dhabi: The heavy fog on Tuesday morning, which affected the visibility in Abu Dhabi, will continue on Wednesday, the meteorological department told Gulf News.

“The visibility was reduced to about 50 meters in the city, the surrounding areas and the south west desert in the morning,” said forecaster Mohammad Al Tal. “The fog did not affect other emirates where the visibility was about 4,000 metres.”

Al Tal forecasted the same phenomenon in the emirate for Wednesday morning, but said that the density of the fog will be lighter, with visibility at about 1,000 metres.

Al Tal said the fog was brought about by regular weather change in November.

The fog slowed down traffic on the roads. “It took me one hour to reach the city from Mussafah instead of half an hour,” said motorist Mohammad Ayoob.
