Dubai might have been covered in fog, but Sheikh Hamdan, Crown Prince of Dubai, had the right idea as he took to the glorious blue skies in a stunning new video.
Sheikh Hamdan posted an incredible video of Instagram of the city bathed in fog and sunshine.
The video gets up close and personal with all the major landmarks including the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab and Downtown.
Fog covered much of Dubai yesterday and as well as the amazing video from Sheikh Hamdan, there were plenty of amazing photographers out snapping up amazing views.
Fog here to stay
The foggy weather isn’t unusual for Dubai at this time of the year. The fog begins to settle at night when the humidity rises during the winter.
And as the UAE’s National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) points out, conditions are perfect for foggy mornings at the moment.
“There has to be cold, stable weather, high humidity levels close to 100 per cent, maximum wind speeds of 5km/h and high-pressure cooling of the earth’s surface… all these conditions allow for the formation of thick fog in the UAE,” said Dr Ahmad Habib.
So be extra careful if you are out on the roads!
