SINGAPORE: Singapore’s three—hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) at 11am on Saturday stood at 39, which was in the "good" range.
The PSI held within the "good" range throughout the morning, fluctuating between a reading of 35 and 41.
The National Environment Agency (NEA) on Friday introduced hourly updates on Singapore’s air quality from 7am to 7pm daily to keep the public informed of the haze situation.
According to the NEA, for the past one week, an increase in hotspot activities was observed over Sumatra.
The prevailing winds blowing from the southwest or south have transported the haze from fires in southern Sumatra towards Singapore.
The winds are expected to be maintained over the weekend and bring an improvement to the hazy conditions.
