Weather Trivia

Interesting to note: The dew point being equal to the temperature, as seen today, indicates air saturation, leading to the formation of fog. This weather condition often occurs when cool air moves over a warm body of water, like Lake Ontario, and then cools to the dew point upon contact with the colder air.
