The haze is back in Singapore on Aug. 26, 2016.

If you looked out your windows and think, "Ah, looks hazy but this could be an illusion, must check with government sources," here's what the 3-hour PSI by the National Environment Agency says:


According to the NEA, the 3-hour PSI at 9am was 90.

The corresponding 24-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading at 9am was 46-58 in the Good to Moderate range.

This was a jump from the 40-54 reading at 8am, which was also in the Good to Moderate range.

Radio station YES 933 has even collated an album of shots from various locations in Singapore with #nofilter:

According to another realistic PSI reading source, a non-official site, the hourly PSI might actually be lower than 90.

Its calculations put the hourly PSI at 64 instead.
