5:50 pm
it this way. it's condensation. to get condensation you take invisible water vapor all around us, cool it down. when it hits the dew point it condenses to the liquid. so why do you see your breath when it's cold? in our mouth we are 98 degrees. a lot of moisture in there. a lot of weather guys with a lot of hot air spit out. there is a lot of moisture. when you talk that goes out in the atmosphere. if it's super cold outside the moisture from your mouth immediately cools to the dew point temperature which condenses. you see your breath. that is why you see generally when it's cold. it has more to do with the moisture content than the temperature. that is why. alison: awesome question. larry: great question. good answer. >> i don't know that i heard that answer. larry: good stuff. alison: thank you. larry: big sunday for the redskins. alison: wow! what a game. robert: i will keep it real. i was shocked. be honest.
