Nov Dew Point by Wind Direction

Posted: 09 Nov 2022 05:30 AM

If you voted for warm and humid November conditions, the next two days will be a victory for you. If you voted for the opposite, the following many number of days will be your victory. So the forecast has something for both sides. To focus on the warmth and humidity for these coming two days, dew point temperatures are forecast to be near unofficial record highs for the month. The featured chart presents the climatology of dew point by wind direction during November for Des Moines. Values above 60 degrees are generally confined to directions from the SE to SW, which is a sign of the need for the transport of such humid air into the state from the south. Such will be the case with strong southerly winds ahead of the front that will change everything on Friday.

Good = 9
Bad = 0
