Dew point and relative humidity are two common measures of atmospheric moisture that are readily available to the masses. However, both are rarely summarized and are often only viewed as current measures of the atmosphere. Uses for dew point and relative humidity reach beyond current assessments or trend analyses. Sectors, including wood working and spirit making, require information on their typically experienced dew point and relative humidity over periods of time ranging from a few days to months to years in order to make decisions and maintain high quality. The Midwestern Regional Climate Center has created an atlas for the Midwest of dew point and relative humidity products over various time scales for use by the public.
