2 The total number of hotspots detected in Sumatra and Kalimantan today was 71 and 40 respectively. Smoke haze was visible in southern Kalimantan.
3 For tomorrow, the prevailing winds are forecast to blow mainly from the south. The weather for Singapore is expected to be fair. There may be occasional slight haze in the morning under light wind conditions. The 24-hr PSI for Singapore is expected to be in the Moderate range.
4 The health impact of haze is dependent on one’s health status, the PSI level, and the length and intensity of outdoor activity. Reducing outdoor activities and physical exertion can help limit the ill effects from haze exposure. Persons who are not feeling well, especially the elderly and children, and those with chronic heart or lung conditions, should seek medical attention. Given the air quality forecast for the next 24 hours, everyone can continue with normal activities.
