Very low humidities

Our recent stretch of warm weather has also been accompanied by very dry conditions making for a dangerous fire setup. The featured chart presents relative humidity from the Ames Airport sensor since the first of June. The end of the growing season is also the end of a water source in the atmosphere from plants. Our vegetation helps keep humidity levels higher during the summer time as can be seen by the minimums in the plot during the summer above 40%.

Good: 11
