Latest Weather and Haze Situation
In the northern ASEAN region, scattered showers fell over some parts of the Mekong sub-region and the Philippines due to rainbands associated with a tropical depression developing to the east of the Philippines. In the southern ASEAN region, dry conditions prevailed over many areas, but there were brief isolated showers in the northern parts of Sumatra and in parts of Malaysia. In Sumatra, moderate to dense smoke haze continued to be observed to emanate from persistent hotspots detected in the provinces of Riau, Jambi, South Sumatra, and Lampung. The prevailing winds have been blowing some of the smoke haze to affect parts of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore. In Kalimantan, persistent hotspots clusters continued to be detected in the West, Central, South, and East Kalimantan provinces. Moderate to dense smoke haze from the hotspots continued to be observed over many areas in Kalimantan. Cloudy conditions over Sarawak, Sabah and Brunei obscured satellite observations, but hazy conditions and reduced visibility were reported in parts of Sarawak and Sarah, and Brunei.
Weather and Haze Outlook
For the next few days, rainy weather can be expected in the northern ASEAN region, and the prevailing winds are forecast to blow from the northwest or southwest. In the southern ASEAN region, the weather is forecast to remain generally dry, and the prevailing winds can be expected to continue blowing from the southeast or southwest. With the hotspots activities in Sumatra and Kalimantan persisting under the prevailing dry weather, hazy conditions in the region can be expected to continue.
