Dewpoint is a direct measure of moisture in the atmosphere and, as you can see on the scale above–we’re in a very uncomfortable to borderline intolerable stretch over the next 3 days, especially if you earn a living working outdoors. Relief is coming! A strong cold front will swing through on Wednesday into early Thursday, potentially bringing some strong thunderstorms with it. Behind the front a fresh, dry air mass will build down with Canadian high pressure. The humidity will drop through the day on Thursday, and 90°+ temps will be replaced with highs 80-85, and dry comfortable air.
