Fog envelops Abu Dhabi this morning


Visibility reduced to 1000 metres in part of the city and beyond.

Fog is slowly creeping into the city this morning (Thursday 13 January) and motorist are being advised to drive cautiously as they head into the city.

The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) has issued a fog alert until 9.00 am on Thursday, yet from Team Yalla office where we can see the fog creeping in, it looks like visibility could be poor after 9am.



NCM said That large parts of the capital will have less than 1,000 meters visibility.

Many of our followers on the Yalla – Abu Dhabi Life IG have posted wonderful shots of the fog swirling and covering many of the capital’s landmarks.

Abu Dhabi Police on their twitter account have advised motorists to exercise caution while driving into the city from suburban districts of the capital.
