Dewpoints have jumped to near 60 degrees, in fact I’ll probably mention it during the 10pm newscast, even though the bosses generally cringe when they hear the word. It is a complicated concept, but just remember the higher the number the larger amount of moisture in the air. The reason I don’t like to use relative humidity is that it’s…well…relative. It goes up and down dramatically each day while the dewpoint only changes when the actual amount of moisture in the air changes.
Looking ahead: Pretty slow weather next week…a bit of warming with higher upper-level heights early in the week then some sort of lower heights with some more moisture (from the west this time) later in the week. Enjoy the weekend because it looks like a decent one for mid-June.
