We are having a week long Santa Ana in Southern California. My personal problem: Winter Santa Anas give me very bad migraines. Plus SDG&E can turn off the power at any moment to prevent fires. Ooops. Too late

After briefly hitting the 80s a week ago, shorts and t-shirt...  35 overnight tonight. I'm unable to function when I'm cold and not in remission.
Eh, nevermind...

It's a beautiful day, sunny and a warm 40F.

Yesterday, however, was COLD. On the upside I learned to accidentally threw rocks with my snowblower. Luckily, they didn't hit anything. I'd hate to have to blame a perfectly innocent neighborhood kid for any destruction that could have occured. :-X
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I was traveling back to limestone county the last few days and watching the weather. It was 71 this morning there. But I didn’t watch the weather for where I would be spending the night. I woke up in Quanah, Texas and it was 23 this morning. The cold is starting to reach my woods. It will be below freezing by morning.
Are we having fun yet?

Dew Point
« Reply #224 on: May 17, 2022, 07:07:35 AM »
From the US National Weather Service:

https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidity

Dew Point vs. Humidity

The dew point is the temperature the air needs to be cooled to (at constant pressure) in order to achieve a relative humidity (RH) of 100%. At this point the air cannot hold more water in the gas form. If the air were to be cooled even more, water vapor would have to come out of the atmosphere in the liquid form, usually as fog or precipitation.

The higher the dew point rises, the greater the amount of moisture in the air. This directly affects how "comfortable" it will feel outside. Many times, relative humidity can be misleading. For example, a temperature of 30 and a dew point of 30 will give you a relative humidity of 100%, but a temperature of 80 and a dew point of 60 produces a relative humidity of 50%. It would feel much more "humid" on the 80 degree day with 50% relative humidity than on the 30 degree day with a 100% relative humidity. This is because of the higher dew point.

So if you want a real judge of just how "dry" or "humid" it will feel outside, look at the dew point instead of the RH. The higher the dew point, the muggier it will feel.

General comfort levels USING DEW POINT that can be expected during the summer months:


    0 to 55: dry and comfortable

    between 55 and 65: becoming "sticky" with muggy evenings

    greater than 65: lots of moisture in the air, becoming oppressive
