Rain in Next Few Days with Temperature As Low As 25°C Means Haze Might Be Gone Temporarily


If you were frantically texting your friends when it started pouring yesterday…

You were not alone in your excitement.

Yesterday (25 September 2019), we were met with thunderstorms and downpour across our sunny hazey island.

The skies must be sending tears of hope to us, because that means the haze finally met a formidable enemy to shut it down (for now).

But hey, the goody news is that the rain isn’t going to stop at one.

It is expected that the rain will go on over the next few days, and the haze may be gone temporarily.

We said may be gone, because it’s still going to linger around with the persistent forest fires in Indonesia.

Thankfully, it would not be as bad as temperatures are expected to go to as low as 25°C.


Don’t we all love the cooling weather?

In case you can’t see, it says rain, rain, rain and rain every day…today all the way to next Monday.

According to the advisory from National Environment Agency (NEA), there are also pockets of rain that Mother Earth sent down to combat certain Sumatra spots!

However, hotspot activities are still observed in central and southern Sumatra, and depending on the prevailing wind direction, we may still experience haze.

So it’s going to be Rain vs Haze from now on.

Not sure if Patrick’s theory is going to work… but let’s just bask in the glory of the ongoing thunderstorms (how ironic, I know) in the meantime.

Remember to bring your umbrellas out with you.
