Widespread foggy conditions are returning to Qatar, and expected to stick around for at least a few days, forecasters have warned.

Misty conditions had already settled over several parts of the country this morning.

As humidity rises this evening, it will combine with light winds to further the foggy weather tomorrow.

Expect zero visibility in the early mornings until at least Thursday, the Qatar Meteorology Department said in a statement.

Thick blankets of fog had already covered the country in late December and early January, slowing down commutes and even affecting some air traffic in the region.

Meanwhile, after a brief cold spell, temperatures are expected to rise to as high as 27C (81F) in Doha today.

However, they will drop to 16C (61F) at night.

Safety tips

As always when driving in fog, motorists are urged to proceed with caution on the roads.

They should use their fog lights and avoid putting on their hazards or high-beams.

Authorities also advise staying in your lane if possible and allowing for more distance between vehicles to give you more reaction time.
