To answer your question "Can Relative Humidity be 120%"... No. It can't. Max RH is 100% The max Dew Point temp can't go above the air temp. If you did have a RH over 100% your Dew Point would be in the upper 90's to near 100. While your air temp would be in the upper 80's to lower 90's. I don't think discussing Global Warming is relevant on a lottery board. (I have my thoughts on the "CYCLE" and I don't not wish to express them here). justxploring I can go along with you on the fact that it's been hot. We both live in the deep south where there is a lot of humidity. It's almost INSANE!!! Thanks Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Oceans. THE METEOROLOGY STUDENT HAS SPOKEN. lol
Back to lottery topic. I do think FL will join powerball. The question is.. WHEN? Not who.
Thanks for your answer. Besides that I completed a meteorology course in college (most of which I've forgotten by now) I was trying to be humorous. But I assume most people know that when the dew point and the air temp are equal we have 100% relative humidity, at least I think so. So I was thinking about all the people who have moved here and installed swimming pools, therefore adding increased moisture into the air. Then they sweat and add carbon dioxide which is a gas which can have an effect on the climate. So we should all stop sweating and eating beans. Seriously, I was only joking! It's like when people say "give me 110%" meaning more than everything you've got. You really can only give 100% of yourself, right?
Maybe I shouldn't ask these questions. It must be the blonde hair..but I'm not changing my avatar.
