6:40 am
wouldn't have to drop the temperature as much to squeeze out moisture or dew. 58 is the dew point, if we just drop the temperature by four more degrees down to 58 we would have 100% humidity and see dew form and squeeze moisture out of the atmosphere. kind of like a sponge. the more humid it feels because of the higher moisture content in the atmosphere. that is probably why you noticed a difference if not yesterday you will today it feels a touch more humid out there. temperature-wise, in the low 60s right now, some of you outside of the city are in the upper 50s, back in the upper 70s, not as warm as yesterday when we hit 81, still up to 78, mostly cloudy, 30% shower chance and check of futurecast to show you to pick up the shower today as well as rain chances, all part of the seven day
