SINGAPORE – The hazy weather will persist in Singapore as the air quality is expected to be in the mid to high sections of the unhealthy range on Tuesday (Oct 27).

According to the National Environment Agency (NEA), there will be reduced visibility, despite thundery showers forecasted on Tuesday afternoon, which may only bring temporary respite from the haze.

As at 8pm on Monday, the 24-hr PSI was 138-170, while the 3-hr PSI was 168, falling in the unhealthy range.

Moderate to dense haze is still present in parts of central and southern Sumatra and Kalimantan, according to NEA.

Due to the impact of haze on one’s health, NEA advises the public to reduce outdoor activities to help limit the ill effects from haze exposure.

The elderly, pregnant women and children should minimise prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion, while those with chronic lung or heart disease should avoid prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion.
