Relative Temperature Chart!

I've been looking for an electronic copy of this for a long time now, and it just randomly shows up in my email inbox this morning attached to a local running organizations monthly email! 

How cool!!!

In case you've never seen one of these, or can't figure out how to read it, at the top it lists off actual air temperature going from left to right for the columns. Going vertically on the left is the relative humidity for the rows. You just find the row and column that fits your situation an can the deduct the relative temperature (or the "Feels Like" temperature). 

So, for example. Right now where I am in Conroe its 77 degrees F outside, and 98% humidity. Therefore... The chart doesn't go that low on temperature. Damn. Lets just say its 80 outside with 98% humidity (which it will be here in a few minutes I'm sure). That would mean that it FEELS like its more like 86~87 degrees outside. That's almost a 10% increase in temperature just due to humidity. 

Unfortunately, 77 is a bit unseasonably cool for this time of year. Normally we're looking at closer to 85 degrees at this time of day (8:00 AM) with 98% humidity. That would make it feel as if it was between 103 and 108 outside.... 

Not egg frying temperature just yet. But we're getting there! 

On a side note, I have started doing a little training again. I've ran a few 5K solo runs. So not an awful lot of volume, but I'm getting there. We're actually still trying to move! The relocation company has been dragging their feet, so we haven't officially moved yet although we're now spending the majority of our time in Conroe. 

So, until next time.... Stay cool and keep hydrated!
