    The Weather Channel kind of sucks. Much of the data and forecast content from the Weather Channel comes from here:

    That is some really dry heat you are having. The closer the air temperature and the dewpoint temperature are means more humidity. 96 / 47 is quite dry.
    ok. I dont know much about that stuff, I just know that some days I can go out and be soaked from the humidity

    For comparison sake, you are at 100 degrees w/ 40% humidity...

    we will be at 97 degrees w/ 85% humidity... walking outside feels like you got punched in the face...

    I have spent time in the southwest, 110 there feels like 85 here

    today is very dry here. I do know what you are talking about. When you walk out and the air is just heavy and wet.

    We were pretty fortunate here yesterday. When we hit Jazzfest it was around 105 and 40% humidity. Usually this time of year it's aobut 95-100 and 70+% humidity. It gets downright nasty up here. Back home in western Kansas it's nice and dry, and 100 degrees isn't that bad.
    My water heater has a blow off valve.
