Strong, Dry Winds TodayMarch 28th, 2012 at 6:38 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
It was a windy day with elevated to high fire danger. Relative humidity levels were as low as 11% today in the viewing area-amazing for Indiana. Here at WLFI, the relative humidity dropped to 21%. It was so incredibly dry that it actually felt several degrees colder than the actual air temperature, especially with the wind. In such dry air, the moisture on your skin evaporates so much that it acts as a natural air conditioner around you, chilling you.
Gusts were measured as high as 47 mph.
