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

Issued 1 May 2019

During the inter-monsoon period, some showers are expected over the Mekong sub-region in the coming fortnight. This may help subdue the hotspot activities, in particular over the northern Mekong sub-region, and bring some improvement to the hazy conditions there. In the southern ASEAN region, the hotspot activities are expected to remain subdued although isolated hotspots may emerge during occasional periods of dry weather.
