Now the dilemma, how does the public differentiate the "meaning" between a high dewpoint and a high RH when they both indicate the air is humid??? Dewpoint is related to the quantity of moisture in the air while relative humidity is related to how close the air is to saturation. How the public is to understand this difference in meaning can be a challenge. The challenge can be overcome by describing how the weather feels and relate that information to the current dewpoint and relative humidity.

Different areas have different levels, it's not a set point and temp....we have the ability to cool ourselves by changing our environment, our snakes have a very limited window being kept in a box. So it's more important to understand humidity and temps variations in a given area. I feel temperature is the most important thing first of all, dew point next and humidity is the result of the two.

So if the environment is 85F deg's and RH is over 60% or so it's uncomfortable not only for us but for snakes too!
