Chief Meterologist Adam Clark Answers Rayman’s Question “What Exactly Is The Definition Of The Term “Dew point”?

When I was a youngster, moisture in the air was described as "humidity". I quickly realized the thicker the air felt, the higher the humidity must be.

Your supposed to use that set when you go out to a fancy place and the dude parks your car for you.
