Outlook for Land Fires and Smoke Haze Situation (1 – 15 Apr 2019)

Issued 31 March 2019

The dry conditions over the Mekong sub-region are expected to gradually ease in the first half of April 2019. More shower activities during the transitional period between the Northeast and Southwest Monsoons may help to improve the hotspot and haze situation in the sub-region. In the southern ASEAN region, hotspot activities are expected to be generally subdued although isolated hotspots may occasionally emerge during brief periods of dry weather.
