Is there something wrong with your eyes? Or does the official reported PSI readings always seem kind of off?

Not to worry.

Using a mix of state-of-the-art sorcery and reverse engineering, this website called “No Bullshit PSI Readings” by a local app developer, provides one of the most accurate up-to-date PSI readings around that reflect what you see and smell (such as this PSI 221 reading at 2.30am on Sept. 24, 2015):

If you relied on official sources for the PSI levels, it tends to get less gratifying — as you can tell, there is a wide divergence in the 3-hour and 24-hour PSI readings, due to a myriad of factors, and they sometimes barely reflect what anyone experiences at the moment:

Because the point is: Who cares about moving averages when it is the precise PSI level at any given point in time that people in Singapore are concerned about?

Maybe this is something the National Environment Agency might want to consider for their daily haze situation updates.
