Relief from 80 dew points

Posted: 13 Aug 2010 07:15 AM

Our recent stretch of wet weather has been accompanied by oppressive humidities. The featured chart displays recent observed dew points at the Des Moines Airport along with a model's forecast for the next few days. Drier air will be ushered into the state this weekend with hopes of a much nicer week ahead. This air mass change will produce thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall yet again.

Good = 59
Bad = 10
