The map above shows our dew-point temperatures which is an important temp when it comes to weather. The dew-points help us determine how much moisture is in the atmosphere. If we look at the circle placed over Southern Mississippi we can see temps in the Mid 70’s. That is considered to be very saturated and humid type of weather. When you walk outside it feels very uncomfortable. While if we look back in Nevada we see 15, this is more respectful of being very dry air. This type of air also...

Cumulus clouds are white in appearance and are formed when warm moist air near the earth’s surface is forced aloft by day time heating. Cumulus clouds are usually associated with nice weather, however if they continue to grow and get more moisture and instability with them they can turn into Towering Cumulus and CB clouds which would change the weather to increase the chance of seeing thunderstorms. Cumulus clouds are typically associated with being found ahead of the cold front and also...
