The NCM has warned of the formation of fog and lack of visibility, appealing to motorists to exercise precautions to preserve the public safety.
The highest temperature recorded over the UAE on Sunday was 51.8ºC in Sueihan, Al Ain at 2.30pm, the National Center of Meteorology (NCM) stated.
It started at 1:00 am in the morning and continued until 8:30 am as a result of the country being affected by weak surface pressure systems accompanied by a high air pressure in the upper atmosphere.
NCM expected the formation of clouds in the east and far north, with a possibility of rainfall on Sunday. The lowest temperature (11.2 °C) was recorded on Saturday at 6:45am in Rokna in the city of Al Ain.
The police said that the accidents occurred after visibility on the roads dropped sharply due to dense fog on motorway between Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar. All kinds of traffic were stopped from entering the motorways following the accidents.
In a statement, the NCM warned against deterioration in horizontal visibility, which may drop even further at times over some coastal and internal areas, from 00:30 until 09:00 on Tuesday.
Dense fog blanketed different areas of the UAE on Wednesday, which lasted for 7 hours. The formation of fog started at 2am and continued until 9am as a result of the country being affected by weak surface pressures, accompanied by an atmospheric high extension in the upper layers of the atmosphere.
Fog started to form in separate areas in Al Ain city, Al Ain International Airport, Al Lisaili, Nizwa, Al Maha, Al Awir, Margham and separate areas in Dubai, Al Dhaid, Al Bataeh, Maliha Street and various areas in Sharjah, including Sharjah International Airport, and on Al Jazirah Al Hamra in Ras Al Khaimah.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) expected the weather to be clear to partly cloudy as of Monday until next Thursday, with chances of fog formation in different areas of the country, accompanied by a rise in temperatures.
