Volcanic fog, better known as Vog, is a common occurrence and nuisance here on the islands, but with the Tropical Storms Iselle and Julio approaching, Sunrise invites back Dr. Steve Businger of the University of Hawaii to discuss the effects Vog will have on the already dangerous weather conditions heading our way.
Dr. Businger and his team at Manoa put out a daily Vog model which shows the impact Vog has on your daily weather. In the past Vog has shown to increase lightening strikes during tropical storms and Businger believes the conditions during Iselle and Julio will prove no different.
