sunset 

I’m down in Virginia visiting Shenandoah National Park. Smoke restricted views somewhat on an otherwise sunny and comfortable day. 

I was lucky enough that the clouds cleared down here for about 10 minutes. Got some great shots right over the bay (this was only with my phone, didn't have anything fancier lol)

Perhaps a silly question, but is humidity higher in rural areas than an airport or urban setting due to more vegetation? 

Could be. This is often the case (vegetation producing higher humidity via evapotranspiration) in a place like Iowa where their are tons farms/cornfields. Dewpoints in the low 80’s can occur.

Thanks. I thought the same. I noticed my location (about 17 miles from KABE) had significantly higher dews than the airport, but my area is much more rural complete with a creek across the street. My Davis Vue does run higher dews, so there's that too.

Yeah. Here’s a quick read. 

I think it’s a reason places in Delaware and eastern MD see dews around 80 while our area for the most part in the mid-70s on a sultry day.

ET, evapotranspiration when stomates open up in the plant and loose water into atmosphere

Another new summer norm, smoke from western wildfires.

Smoke is pretty intense here in northern NH.   Visibility under 4 miles since the summit of Mt. Bunnell @ 3730' is 4 miles from me and is barely visible.   Sky has only a few cumulus clouds, but is only faintly blue.    BTW, tracking an intense squall line just crossing the CA-US border.    Watches up to the VT/NH line for large hail and high winds.   At least no dead ash trees can fall on the house here.
