Meteorology is not the study of meteors. Fair?
It is more humid than Jorge Garcia's pits in this town. It is a deceptively mild 93 degrees, but the dew point is 77. The greater the difference between the temperature and the dew point, the drier the air. A 13 degree variance spells miserable. What is the dew point to temperature variance where you are today?
Yeah. I will just wait right here while you do that.
Basically the deal is that you can sweat, but you can't get rid of sweat. It just sits there and welcomes the new sweat coming behind it. Soon you are enveloped in a sweat blanket, which is hotter than wet wool. Unless you have someone like Charlie Hodge following you around with fresh towels, then you will overheat and fall over dead. You will be lying there with little X's for eyes, but it won't be a cartoon. Sometimes your head might pop off from the steam pressure.
August is no time to start an outdoor comeback.
