    • Rainy weather in Singapore expected to subside later on Tuesday: NEA

       

      SINGAPORE - Relief from the current rainy conditions is expected later on Tuesday (Jan 24), according to the National Environment Agency (NEA).

      "Periods of rain brought by a monsoon surge continues to affect Singapore," said NEA in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

      "The monsoon surge is forecast to gradually weaken and bring an improvement to the weather situation later in the day."

      Most parts of Singapore had been experiencing heavy rainfall since early Monday morning, with two roads in the Tanjong Pagar area hit by flash floods the same day.

      The rainy weather, which NEA has attributed to a monsoon surge caused by a strengthening of winds over the South China Sea, continued well into Tuesday morning.

      Both days were marked by traffic delays due to the wet conditions and fallen trees.

      NEA added that the weather on Wednesday is expected to be cloudy with occasional light rain.

    • Rains expected over Chinese New Year weekend: NEA

      Passing and heavy showers are forecast this Chinese New Year weekend due to strong wind conditions over the South China Sea, the National Environment Agency said Thursday (26 January).

      “A monsoon surge is expected to affect the South China Sea and our surrounding region over the next few days,” NEA said.

      The surge could cause passing showers in Singapore on Friday afternoon, the eve of Chinese New Year. Periodic heavy showers are expected on Saturday, the first day of the Chinese New Year.

      The surge is forecast to gradually weaken on Sunday, with passing showers expected in the afternoon.

      The daily temperature this weekend is forecast to range between 22°C and 32°C, according to NEA.

    • This time, it is local pollution causing haze

      "Based on the latest satellite images, there were no significant hotspots or smoke haze detected in the nearby region," said a spokesman for the National Environment Agency (NEA).

      "The haziness was due to the accumulation of particulate matter under light wind conditions," the spokesman added.

      The 24-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reached a high of 95 in southern Singapore at 8am yesterday.

      A PSI reading above 100 indicates unhealthy air quality, while a reading of between 51 and 100 is considered moderate.

      Under moderate conditions, normal activities can be carried out.

      The 24-hour PSI across Singapore hovered in this range for the rest of the day, although readings in southern Singapore leaned toward the higher end.

      Experts told The Straits Times there were a negligible number of hotspots in Riau, Sumatra or Kalimantan - areas in Indonesia where fires are started that are usually the cause of smoke haze.

      "This makes Indonesia unlikely to be the source of the bad air," noted volunteer group PM.Haze (People's Movement to Stop Haze), which monitors haze in Singapore.

      "Another significant source of our poor air is exhaust from traffic," said PM.Haze executive director Zhang Wen.

      Usually, domestic pollution is blown away by the wind, she said. "But as it was not windy yesterday, the pollutants could not disperse, making it look hazy."
