Hawaii Vog and Weather

You can find the latest Hawaii vog, volcanic activity, and weather maps here.

Hawaii Vog:

Residents and visitors to Hawaii are always concerned about the vog, or “volcanic fog”.  The amount of vog changes depending on the volcanic emissions and the wind speed and direction.

This can dramatically affect the air quality to all of the Hawaiian islands at times and can create a haziness similar to bigger cities like Los Angeles.

Since 2008, the volcano, Kilauea, has been more active, so the vog has been more of a problem, especially in the Kona area. Typically, the Waikoloa area is influenced to a much lesser extent.  However, keep in mind, even on a voggy day, Hawaii is still beautiful!
