Outlook for Land Fires and Smoke Haze Situation (16 – 31 Jul 2018)

Issued 17 Jul 2018

Hotspot activities in the northern ASEAN region are expected to remain subdued due to the prevailing wet weather conditions. In the southern ASEAN region, with dry conditions forecast to persist for the rest of the month, there is an increased risk of hotspot activities in the region, in particular in southern Sumatra, western and central Kalimantan. Further escalation of hotspot activities could lead to the occurrence of transboundary smoke haze.
