Wind Direction and Dew Point

Posted: 19 Jun 2015 05:38 AM

Earlier this week, the average dew point at a given temperature was featured. Today's feature show the combination of average dew point for a given wind direction. On Thursday, dew points were comfortable with a northerly wind. The featured chart shows a clear relationship between the wind direction and the average dew point for June at Des Moines. Of course, our major source of humidity comes from the south, so it would make sense that our dew points are higher with a southerly wind.

Good = 30
Bad = 14
Abstain = 25
