SINGAPORE - Air quality is expected to stay in the moderate range tomorrow (Nov 8), with thundery showers forecast in the afternoon, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said in its haze situation update today.

The 24-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) stayed within the moderate range on Saturday, and generally improved as the day went on. The 24-hour PSI at 6pm was 52-69, while the 3-hour PSI was at 58. Singapore experienced showers in the early morning hours and in the afternoon.

Winds are forecast to be weak and variable in direction tomorrow, and visibility is expected to be normal.

NEA said that 10 hotspots were detected in Sumatra today, and that showers have helped to improve the haze situation there.
