Island weather is unpredictable. Visitors should be prepared for rain and wear layers of clothing to ensure their comfort while exploring the park. Temperature varies by elevation. Weather at Kilauea's summit (4000' elevation) varies daily and may be rainy and chilly any time of the year. At the summit of the volcano, temperatures may be 12 to 15 degrees cooler than at sea level. The coastal plain at the end of Chain of Craters Road, where lava is entering the ocean, is often hot, dry, and windy with the possibility of passing showers. Be prepared for all weather conditions. Wear layers of clothing, bring raingear, water. flash light and wear hiking boots or shoes if you plan to venture out on trails. 






 What is Vog?

Very simply, vog is volcanic air pollution. It can have a big impact on people who are sensitive to it.  Sulfur dioxide reacts with other gases, moisture, dust and sunlight to form vog. Molten lava flowing down the flanks of Kilauea often pours into the sea, where it interacts with sea water to also produce hydrogen sulfide and other chemicals. Reduced air quality, decreased visibility,  Asthma attacks; Beware of Vog on the Big Island. Vog is volcanic air pollution and varies with volcanic activity and wind direction. Vog can have a big impact on people who are sensitive to it. Itchiness, short tempers, bronchitis, allergies, headaches, a prickly sensation or  low energy are all possible indications of a reaction to Vog. If you are considering a move to the Big Island, be aware of the VOG conditions which exist on the island. The area from Kailua-Kona to Oceanview are the most heavily affected. Areas from Volcano Village to Hilo can also experience high levels of VOG.  VOG worsens with altitude - sea level being better than higher altitudes - up to the 6000 ft. level. Above 6000 ft. VOG begins to diminish rapidly. Some Big Island crops are shriveling as sulfur dioxide from Kilauea wafts over them and envelops them in "vog," or volcanic smog. People are wheezing and schoolchildren are being kept indoors during recess. High gas levels led Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to close several days, forcing the evacuation of thousands of visitors.
