What's the weather and temperature like where you live?? - 2017
Grams of water per cubic meter of air is measurement that can be compared within different temperatures.
Example, here temperature outdoors is now -7.4C (18.7F) and relative humidity is 98%, moist/damp you say? There is 2.6 grams of water per 1 cubic meter of air.
If you have temperature of 20C (68F) and relative humidity of 15% that is same 2.6 grams of water per 1 cubic meter of air, so it is equally moist/damp.
Example 2, if there is -20C (-4F) and relative humidity of 70%, there is 0.6 grams of water per 1 cubic meter of air, compare that to how at 20C (68F) relative humidity should be less than 4% for air to be equally dry.
Dry air makes cold easier to tolerate, but lips and skin suffer, during the summer it is then our high humidity that makes especially night time hot (to us) temperatures be so hard to tolerate, also it would take 4-6 weeks to get used to those temps and it is rare to get more than 2 weeks of those higher temps.
Same as us though iPad says it is now 34 degrees. LOVE this winter so far. No snow on the ground & none forecast. I can do this!
e: Outdoor air is quite dry, with 2,35 grams of water per 1 cubic meter of air, relative humidity is 95% which might fool one to think it is not dry, but at this temperature there can't be moist air, water is going to freeze and fall down as a snow. It is already at 14 degrees ( -10C), west wind and east wind are at collision right here, so we are going to get some snow here too, tomorrow twice the cold of today.

Rain, rain, and rain. Pouring right now. I'm not complaining as desperately need the rain. We are in a drought watch and everybody has been asked to try to conserve at least 10% of water usage.
Temp is currently about 38 F. It is to really tumble tomorrow and into the weekend. And to become very blustery again.
Humidity is 1.2g/m3 that means it is equivalent of 20C (68F)being 7% humidity.
When I woke up it was 15C (59F) indoors, there was 22C (71,6F) when I went to bed though, so building is not holding heat too well.

Tomorrow's high temp is 9. Thursday's high temp is 6. It should be back in the 20s by Saturday.
Smooth ice on roads, also nice breeze, feels like temp was -17 degrees, of course as I was riding towards the wind half the way, that did add up a bit.
I'm not sure if there really is too much of difference from 60 to 31 and 31 to 0, drop always feels cold at first, then after a while one gets used to new normal.
I had to visit outhouse (this is quite rural area, but I use dry toilet and it is at outhouse, we are not that much behind rest of the world!), temp had fallen to -6 degrees (-20F with windchill), but as it is a short distance, I thought that I don't bother putting all the clothing, so I sported slippers, short underwear and t-shirt for my trip, I did forgot that it is quite windy... Let's just say that trip was bit longer than anticipated and I might not have that kind of sports again, after all it is our first day of these temps and it takes time to get used to them.
Only 0.7g of water per 1 cubic meter of air now, that is equivalent of 4% relative humidity at 68 degrees, anything more than 10 minutes outside and I put face mask on breathing starts to hurt otherwise.
22 F this morning and the wind is unreal. Wind chills will still be in the single digits at noon today. I was to do some site inspections today and take pictures; I may wait until tomorrow as the wind is to die down tonight.
77 degrees to 50 degrees in less than 10 hours, how come I were still sweating while sleeping is a mystery, I guess something to do with dreamworld...
