His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum shared a spectacular video to Instagram of the thick fog on Sunday, which showcases the best views of three of Dubai’s iconic skyscrapers – the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al Arab and Emirates Towers.

Expect more videos and photos to be circulated on social media of the fog for the next few days, as the National Centre of Meteorology has forecasted the mist to stay for the rest of the week.

However, by Friday the fog is expected to have cleared.

As for temperatures in Dubai, expect it to get quite chilly during the evenings with lows of 14 degrees celsius.

But while the cooler weather is still here, now is time to savour the next few months of still being able to sit outside before the scorching heat hits the UAE. For some inspiration of some gorgeous al-fresco hotspots with stunning views overlooking Dubai’s skyline, look at our round-up here.
