Our humidity level will go up this weekend as dew points climb above 70°. The highest dew points we ever see here in Iowa are in the low 80s…now that is humid. I have one better. On July 8, 2003, Dhahran, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia the dew point soared to 95°. Yes 95°. That is a world record high dew point. Here is the observation at 1 pm that day.
