Louis Rosenstock in Baltimore reminds me that humidity determines comfort in a Chesapeake summer. He and others plead for humidity forecasts, not just data on yesterday's mugginess. Many older people step into suffocating humidity and turn back, Rosenstock says. "They can't handle a certain level of oppressive heat." The problem is cramming more data into this space. Try a NOAA Weather Radio. Dew point's over 70? Stay indoors. Or go online. The NWS has a nifty interactive forecast at www.weather.gov/forecasts/wfo/sectors/lw x.php
