SINGAPORE: A slight hazy condition affected Singapore on Friday evening, with prevailing winds from the south of Singapore.

The National Environment Agency (NEA) said the 24—hour PSI reading at 10pm was between 34 and 47, in the good range.

The PSI at 8am on Saturday was 47 (good).

NEA said Singapore is currently experiencing the Southwest Monsoon season which typically lasts from June to September/early October.

NEA said this is the traditional dry season for the southern ASEAN region.

Over the past few days, weather conditions in the region have become drier and an increase in hotspot activities has been observed in Sumatra.

NEA said scattered hotspots with smoke haze have been detected mostly over central and southern Sumatra.

NEA is monitoring the haze situation closely and will provide updates should the air quality deteriorate.
