Low visibility is expected in the northern parts of Qatar in the early hours of Friday due to fog, the Met department has said.

The weather office also tweeted that suitable weather conditions for offshore activities were expected over the weekend, with the sea state being “slight to moderate”.

The detailed forecast for inshore areas on Friday says hazy to misty/foggy conditions are likely in the northern areas at first, followed by a hot day with some clouds. It will be relatively humid and hazy by night.

Visibility may drop to 2km or less in some places towards the north in the early hours, according to the weather report.

Hazy conditions, meanwhile, are expected in offshore areas.
