Before I get into the outlook, a heads up for folks in the western mountains. The Sugarloaf Mountain NOAA Weather Radio transmitter is offline and will be for a few days. With the potential for strong to severe storms through Wednesday, please make sure your radios are set to pick up forecast information and warnings from any of the three stations that you can pick up. I know it can be a bit tricky to get alternate stations in the valleys. Make sure that you test to find out what station you can receive well and check your phones for service quality. Have weather app that can deliver bulletins to you. My personal preference is the AccuWeather app based on experience in comparison to others.
Back to the swamp once again
It's those icky, sticky, late days of summer. The dew points have been higher at times previous, but the relative humidity levels may be higher this time around. What is the difference between dew point and relative humidity? The dew point is the condensation temperature of the air. Relative humidity is the amount of moisture in the air relative to the air temperature. With dew points around 70° and actual temperatures in the 80s, relative humidity levels push to 60-65% which is gross factor 4 out of 5 level. It won't be as bad as we've seen this summer, but humid enough to be air-you-can-wear.
Relief is coming!
