May Dew Points at Temperature

Posted: 23 May 2016 05:34 AM

The weather this past weekend was rather amazing with warm temperatures and low humidities for much of the state. Only portions of extreme western Iowa got in on the muggy air on Sunday afternoon. The rest of the state was in the upper 70s and lower 80s with dew points well below those levels. The featured chart displays the average dew point at a given temperature in May for Des Moines. The average of 60 degree dew points is shown for temperatures in the lower 80s. So the weather we just experienced was certainly a treat! Things will change this week with numerous rounds of storms expected and muggier conditions.

Good = 10
Bad = 2
