    Voggy conditions are forecast through Saturday.

Southeasterly winds will keep vog lingering around the state, and southerly winds will make for less chilly nights for the rest of the week, the National Weather Service said.

A light southeast flow has been pushing volcanic emissions from Kilauea across the islands, creating the volcanic haze, the Weather Service said. The breeze will continue through Saturday.

“It’s hazy out,” said Ian Morrison, a forecaster with the Weather Service in Honolulu. “It’s going to be hazy or voggy through the week.”

The state Department of Health’s air quality website showed moderate conditions today at Sand Island, Paia on Maui, and several places on Hawaii island. Conditions were good in Puna, Kihei, West Oahu, and Kauai.

Southerly winds over Kauai and Oahu will also bring in moisture that keeps overnight temperatures from dropping as much as they have over the past several nights, the Weather Service said.

Morrison said overnight temperatures over Oahu have been in the low 60s, but will be in the mid- to upper-60s starting from tonight.
