We've had a good taste of early spring; now it's time for a little summer. Humidity is approaching levels more likely seen in May or June. Downtown, at the Sun weather station on Calvert Street, temperatures reached 80 degrees at 3 p.m. with a dew point of 62 degrees, which means a sticky feeling at the low end of uncomfortable territory for most people. Earlier this morning, there was 81 percent relative humidity and the dew point reached as high as 66. BWI Airport reported 80 degrees and a dew point of 52 as of 2 p.m.  It could likely be the hottest day of what has already been such a warm year.

Humidity is intense in some parts of Maryland, and it is expected to continue for a few days. Summer weather is upon us. Martin State Airport in Middle River posted a dew point of 72 degrees as of 9:45 a.m., beyond the normal mugginess of a hot Baltimore day. The air is thick, wet and heavy there. In Annapolis, the dew point was 68 degrees by 10 a.m., while BWI Marshall Airport was at 64 degrees. With dew points, anything above 60 degrees is uncomfortable, while getting above 70 degrees is downright unbearable.

Summer may technically be over with, but summer-like sticky weather is expected to last through the week in Baltimore. Dew points haven't fallen below 70 degrees at BWI Marshall Airport since Saturday. With temperatures only in the 70s and 80s mostly since then, that meant thick, wet air over Labor Day weekend. The dew point takes into account both the relative humidity and the air temperature, giving a better picture of how humidity feels -- and anything above about 65 feels pretty uncomfortable.
