As the prevailing weather conditions across the country, dust haze continues to impact visibility, with gradual improvements expected in certain regions. The agency anticipates that the northern region of the country will experience slight dust haze throughout Sunday, which may affect horizontal visibilities.

In areas spanning from the North Central down to the southern parts of the country, moderate dust haze is expected, with horizontal visibilities ranging from 2000 to 5000 meters.

“The North Central down to the southern parts of the country are expected to experience moderate dust haze with horizontal visibility of 2000 to 5000 meters,” the report read.
