On Monday (Sep 9), the National Environment Agency (NEA) mentioned that Singapore could experience “slightly hazy conditions” due to the hotspots in Sumatra.
A total of 380 hotspots were detected in central and southern Sumatra, and the dry weather is expected to persist for the next few days. The haze has spread across the Strait of Malacca to some parts of Malaysia and Singapore.
The forecast says that prevailing winds are blowing from southeast or south, thus affecting Southern and Eastern Singapore the most, with 1-hour PSI readings 94 and 97 respectively.
The 1-hr PM2.5 concentration readings over the next 24 hours are expected to be in Band I (Normal) and Band II (Elevated). Overall, the PSI for the next 24 hours is forecast to be in the Moderate range.
“Given the air quality forecast for the next 24 hours, everyone can continue with normal activities. Persons who are not feeling well, especially the elderly and children, and those with chronic heart or lung conditions, should seek medical attention,” said NEA.
