If you are planning to drive early morning in Qatar, then it's better to be careful as there's a  high chance of mist and fog in the country today.

“Latest observations show high humidity with a chance of mist to fog over some area of the country during coming hours. Please be cautious,” Qatar’s Met Department said in an early morning tweet.

It later sent another update, saying mist had indeed been observed in certain parts of the country.

“Latest observations show misty to foggy conditions in some areas with visibility dropping to 100 meters in Alshahanya currently, please be careful. #Qatar,” read the tweet from the government entity.

Earlier, the Met Department had tweeted about the general weather outlook for the country during December.

“December is the first month of the winter season. It is characterised by frequent passage of frontal systems that travel from Europe, accompanied by unsettled weather conditions,” said the Met Department.

“After the passage of the cold front, a high pressure system develops accompanied by fresh to strong northwesterly winds causing high waves and a noticeable drop in temperature,” it tweeted.
