    Forecast for Singapore today

    SINGAPOREANS can continue to expect the air to be good.

    The National Environment Agency (NEA) said yesterday that the 24-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) today, until 6pm, is expected to be at the high end of the good range - below 50.

    The 24-hour PM2.5 level today is expected to be slightly elevated. PM2.5 particulates - fine particles less than 2.5 micro- metres in diameter - are said to be more dangerous to a person's health than larger particles.

    Still, NEA said that normal activities can be carried out by healthy people, children, seniors, pregnant women, and people with chronic medical conditions, especially lung or heart disease.

    NEA said that for the next few days, low-level winds from the south-west are expected.

    Thunderstorms are expected in the late morning and early afternoon.
