On Sunday, NEA said a total of 70 hotspots were detected in Sumatra, with smoke plumes and haze visible in Riau province.

It also said for the next few days, the prevailing northeasterly winds will keep the haze from Sumatra away from Singapore. However, slight haze might be experienced due to the accumulation of particulate matter under stable atmospheric conditions, particularly in the morning.
