Here is the weather advisory from NEA:

Haze Situation Update (October 13)

There were thundery showers over parts of Singapore in the late afternoon today. At 7pm, the 24-hr PSI was 64 - 80, in the Moderate range.

The total number of hotspots detected in Sumatra and Kalimantan today was 7 and 47 respectively.

The low hotspot count was due to partial satellite coverage and cloud cover over both Sumatra and Kalimantan. Widespread smoke haze was visible in parts of Sumatra and Kalimantan.

For tomorrow, the prevailing winds are forecast to be light and variable in direction. Thundery showers are expected for Singapore in the afternoon.

There may be occasional slight haze during the day.

The overall air quality for the next 24 hours is expected to be in the high-end of the Moderate range but may enter the low end of the Unhealthy range from time to time should the winds turn unfavourable.

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.

Given the air quality forecast for the next 24 hours, healthy persons should reduce prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion.

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.

Persons who are not feeling well, especially the elderly and children, and those with chronic heart or lung conditions, should seek medical attention.
