Sub-60 Dew Points in July

Posted: 11 Jul 2013 05:12 AM

Very comfortable air arrived in Iowa on Wednesday with dew point temperatures only in the 50s. The featured map looks at how common it is to have sub 60 degree dew point temperatures in July. Iowa is analyzed in the 20-40 percent of the time range with frequencies decreasing the further south you go. The benefit of having such a low dew point temperature is that it allows the air to cool to that temperature overnight making for windows-open sleeping weather! Humidity is expected to slowly build back into the state with dew points back into the 60s to 70s next week.

Good = 99
Bad = 13
