Channel NewsAsia 27 Sep 16;

SINGAPORE: Dry weather conditions are expected over parts of northern and central Sumatra, Indonesia in the next few days, and Singapore could see slightly hazy conditions if the number of hotspots in Sumatra increase, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Tuesday (27 Sep).

In a media statement, NEA added that 13 hotspots were detected in Sumatra on Tuesday although no visible smoke plumes or haze was seen.

With thundery showers expected over parts of Singapore on Wednesday morning, the country's air quality is expected to remain largely unchanged over the next day: The one-hour PM2.5 concentration over the next 24 hours is expected to remain in Band I (Normal) and the PSI for the next 24 hours is forecast to be in the Moderate range.
