Latest Weather and Haze Situation

Drier conditions persisted over Peninsular Malaysia, the Lesser Sunda Islands, Borneo and the central parts of the Mekong sub-region today, while showers fell elsewhere over the ASEAN region. A few hotspots were detected in Sumatra, Lao PDR, Thailand, Viet Nam and Myanmar but no smoke haze was observed.

Weather and Haze Outlook

Drier conditions are expected over parts of the western Mekong sub-region and most parts of the southern ASEAN region, except for southern Sumatra and western Borneo in the coming days. Showers are forecast for other parts of the ASEAN region. Localised hotspots and smoke haze may occur if dry weather is prolonged over fire-prone regions in these areas. The winds are forecast blow from the southwest or west in the northern ASEAN region while the winds are forecast to be light and variable in direction in 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.
