Latest Weather and Haze Situation

Rainy conditions prevailed over the ASEAN region today and the showers helped to subdue the overall hotspot activity in the region. Few hotspots were detected in parts of Viet Nam, West and North Kalimantan, as well as Sumatra, but no significant smoke haze was observed.

Weather and Haze Outlook

In the coming days, rainy weather is likely to persist over much of the ASEAN region. Hotspot activity in the region is expected to remain low, although isolated hotspots may still be detected over the fire-prone areas during occasional periods of drier conditions. The prevailing winds are forecast to be variable over areas north of the Equator, and to blow mainly from the southeast to southwest over areas south of the Equator.

  • 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.
