Yet another crazy thing about dew points

So I've been using the "wunderground.com" site to monitor dew points......and I noticed that the exact location of the report for my zipcode is on a lake, not super close to here (maybe 10-15 minutes?). So I decided to check the zip codes for 2 other town centers that are, also, within a 10-minute radius of my house.

The results? (Drumroll please....)

In one location, the dewpoint was 50 degrees.
In another, it was 43.
In the third, it was (I kid you not!) 28 degrees.

All of these are within a 10-minute drive from my house. Can I just say? WTF????

No wonder my hair and I are always confused....

Perhaps this is a mistake, or an anomaly.... (maybe a front coming through, but I didn't think there was supposed to be). But I'm gonna start tracking this!

Wurly and proud!

That is interesting, if really weird. I didn't think of the effects of groundwater like lakes affecting anything, but it makes sense.

So, now what? Do you use the low one? The high one? Average them? What a conundrum.

Oh man, Welcome to New England....I think I would just use an avg. of the three......... One day it's 80 the same night there are frost warnings it's insane...........

You're totally right, Del -- the weather's so crazy here there's almost no point! I tend to sort of average out the dewpoints, and also I try to look at the "hourly" forecast section to see if there will be any big changes in the day. But I very often find that, when I check the "current conditions" part of the website for dewpoints, it's already way outside of the predicted range, so the hourly information is kind of useless.

I have had a couple of great days recently, though. Man, my hair loves a 50-60 degree dewpoint with my simple Biolage gel (with or without CK). Go figure!

Meanwhile, it probably isn't helping that, on the "below 45" dewpoint days, I'm experimenting with KCCC at the moment. (Boy, is that a strange product!). So my hair is kind of all over the place.

Oh well.... serenity...Zen..... giving up control....

I love me some dew points, and they are super helpful for me, but nothing works for everyone.
