RAIN brought some relief on Friday, but the National Environment Agency (NEA) has warned that the haze is not going away just yet.

The downpour in the late morning and early afternoon was not enough to mitigate the haze.

The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) readings, measured in three-hour intervals, hovered in the moderate range for most of yesterday, dropping as low as 66 at 3pm before climbing to 81 at 7pm.

And it will likely stay hazy throughout the weekend.

The NEA said prevailing winds were expected to remain south-westerly to westerly, blowing the smoke haze from the fires in Sumatra over to Singapore.

No heavy rain is expected in the affected Riau province in Indonesia.
