Humid start; comfortable endingJune 12th, 2012 at 8:03 am by Tara Hastings under Weather
As I was making my way to work this morning (VERY early) I could just feel how sticky the air was. Our dew point or basically the way we measure how much moisture is in the air started out in the middle and upper 60′s. YUCK! Dew point readings begin to fall later this morning and by this afternoon will be at a more comfortable level.
The reason we are seeing so much moisture is the cold front hasn’t moved through yet. This is the same system that brought us the rain yesterday. While some of the farmers are still looking for some more rain it looks like that’s it for the week. Our weather checkers called in and had about a half an inch in the rain gauge.
Today no rain in the forecast. We’ll see clouds decrease and the afternoon will shape up to be a great one! If any of you are heading to the Reds game here’s the forecast:
The comfortable humidity and temperatures are not going to stick around for long. It looks like our long term forecast will bring in higher temperatures for the end of the week and the weekend. Temperatures will rise into the middle and upper 80′s for the week as a hot and humid air mass moves in from the west.
Have a fantastic day!
