2017 Humidity

Posted: 10 Aug 2017 05:35 AM

Our somewhat strange early August weather continued on Wednesday with mild temperatures and low humidity levels. The featured chart displays a climatology of surface mixing ratio, which is a direct measure of the amount of moisture in the air. The daily averages for this year are placed in the context of long term daily averages and ranges. The bottom panel displays a departure from average. You can see how recent stretch has been well below average and running near the bottom of the range of what humidity levels have been during previous years.

Good = 12
Bad = 0
