Waikīkī Vog

Over the past couple of weeks, southerly winds have brought a thick layer of volcanic haze, or vog, up from the island of Hawai‘i. It has also brought unstable weather and humidity. Pictured above is the vog layer shrouding the east end of Waikīkī and the Kaimuki district of Honolulu (lower half). Tradewinds, that will clear out the vog, aren't expected to return until this weekend.
