Regional Haze Situation
Latest Weather and Haze Situation
There were scattered showers over most parts of the ASEAN region today. Hotspot activities remained generally subdued with isolated hotspots detected mainly in western Myanmar as well as parts of Lao PDR, Cambodia and Viet Nam. No significant smoke haze was observed except for a few localised smoke plumes observed to be emanating from some of the hotspots in Viet Nam.
Weather and Haze Outlook
For the next few days, shower activities are expected over the ASEAN region, particularly over the equatorial areas and the southern parts of the Philippines. The prevailing winds are forecast to blow mainly from the southeast or southwest over the northern ASEAN region, and from the east or southeast over the southern ASEAN region.
- All maps are to be used solely for displaying meteorological/geophysical information, and not for any other purpose. All maps are not to scale and for illustrative purpose only.
- The hotspots depicted on the map are derived from the NOAA satellite and they represent locations with possible fires. Hotspots may go undetected due to cloudy conditions or incomplete satellite pass.
- At Alert Level 0 and Alert Level 1, the regional haze situation is updated once a day at 0900 UTC. The regional haze situation is updated thrice daily at 0200 UTC, 0500 UTC and 0900 UTC upon activation of Alert Level 2 or Alert Level 3. Updates at 0200 and 0500 UTC display hotspot information from night-time passes of the NOAA-20 satellite. Fewer hotspots were typically detected at night as fire activities usually peak during the day.
- Reprocessed satellite data will be availed at a later timing. The hotspot information derived from satellite data reprocessed may differ slightly from that received near real-time but reprocessing is necessary for better quality data.
- The 2500 ft winds (depicted by arrows) are model analysis winds.
