Humidity

The Weather Today can be described with many different adjectives. The weather today can be beautiful, with a sunny sky and a light breeze. However, the weather today can also be unpleasantly humid, feeling like a sauna outside.

So, what is humidity? Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. The higher the humidity, the muggier it feels outside. When the air is saturated with water vapor, it is said to be at “100% relative humidity.” However, relative humidity does not always give an accurate picture of how humid it actually feels outside. This is because our bodies cool themselves by evaporating sweat, and evaporation is impeded when the air is already saturated with water vapor.

The dew point is a better measure of how humid it feels outside. The dew point is the temperature at which the air must be cooled in order for condensation (dew) to form. The higher the dew point, the higher the chance for rain and the muggier it will feel outside.

The Weather Tomorrow

Forecast

Temperature

The average high temperature for tomorrow is 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The average low temperature is 41 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wind

The wind will be blowing from the north at 10 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts up to 25 miles per hour.

Humidity

The air tomorrow is going to be full of water vapor. No, not clouds—just invisible water molecules floating around, looking for something to condense on. The higher the humidity, the more water vapor is present in the air.

The average relative humidity for Kansas City tomorrow is forecast to be about 78%. That means that, on average, there will be 78% as much water vapor in the air as there could be if the air were “saturated” (holding all the water vapor it can). Saturation happens when air and water are in contact with each other, such as when a pot of water is boiling on the stove or when fog forms over a lake.

Sometimes people confused humidity with dew point. The dew point is the temperature at which air must be cooled in order for saturation (100% relative humidity) to occur. Therefore, when the dew point is high, so is the relative humidity.
