It could get hazier, hotter and drier here over the next couple of weeks, no thanks to the return of the El Nino weather phenomenon.

Already, Its effects have hit other parts of the world, including the US, Australia, Japan, India and Malaysia, according to their national weather bureaus.

And Singapore, too, may be hit.

In the meantime, the National Environment Agency is providing thrice-daily updates of the Pollutant Standards Index, instead of once-a-day readings.

As part of measures to achieve higher air quality standards, health advisories on Singapore’s five different regions (North, South, East, West and Central) will also be issued when needed.
