For some reason you just don’t trust them. Maybe it was all of the years of good weather turning to floods, or perhaps the “no more than three inches of snow” that turned into twenty inches. Maybe it’s the technology they use, or the tie they wear every night in the broadcast. It could even be that a Meteorologist made fun of you when you were a small child... whatever the case is, the result is the same and you just don’t trust them.
Good news! You don’t have to! You can make your own weather predictions by measuring the humidity and dew point of the air using a handful of household items!
In seven steps, I will show you how to accurately calculate the humidity and dew point in the air without the use of a computer program or any other sort of Meteorologist trickery.
A little bit about how this instructable is set up:
This instructable contains nine steps, but step one and nine are the process overview and results interpretation, respectably. The other steps are broken down within themselves into smaller "essential" steps. All of these "essential" steps are bolded within the text and any image references are made in the first line so you can easily check the image while reading the instructions. These detailed images are complete with captions; please read them!
The text that is not bolded is supplemental and important to read the first time through. This supplemental text contains tips on how to avoid commonly made mistakes as well as the project's restrictions! If you've read this instructable before then you can probably skip reading these and just read the bold text. This setup is for your convenience.
Enjoy the instructable!
