Outlook for Land Fires and Smoke Haze Situation (16 – 30 Apr 2019)

Issued 12 April 2019

During the inter-monsoon period, more shower activities over the Mekong sub-region are expected. This can help to gradually subdue the persistent hotspot activities and bring an improvement to the haze situation there. In the southern ASEAN region, hotspot activities are expected to be generally subdued, although isolated hotspots with localised smoke plumes may occasionally emerge during brief periods of dry weather.
