SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - This weekend will feel rather summer-like across much of the Gulf Coast. Sure, the air temperature will warm into the 80s. But, that's just half the story. The other half is the dew point.
Technically, the dew point, or dew point temperature, is the temperature to which air must cool in order for moisture, or dew, to form. In other words, it's a measure of how much moisture is in the air. Typically, the higher the dew point, the more muggy it feels.
