The highest humidity ever recorded was a 95 degrees Fahrenheit dew point in Saudi Arabia in 2003. The dew point is correlated with relative humidity; theoretically, humidity could reach saturation at 100 percent and ther... More »

To calculate dew point, you need to know the current temperature and relative humidity, and then solve the equation Td = T - ((100 - RH) / 5) for Td, which stands for the dew point temperature in degrees Celsius. This eq... More »

The word "dew" refers to small drops of water formed from moisture condensation in the atmosphere. The temperature at which the water vapor becomes a liquid at the same rate as it evaporates at a given atmospheric pressu... More » Science Earth Science Atmosphere

Relative humidity is defined as the amount of atmospheric moisture present, divided by the amount of moisture that would be present if the air were completely saturated. This ratio is typically expressed as a percentage.... More » Science Earth Science Atmosphere

Cumulus clouds are comprised of water droplets, water vapor, super-cooled water droplets and ice crystals (when the freezing point is in the middle of the cloud), according to Northern Michigan University. Cumulus clouds... More »
